Some cool SQL Server user names

One day when I checked SQL Server messages in Event Viewer I found a long series of unsuccessfull attacks. Somebody desperately tried to guess user names and passwords. I post most frequently tried passwords here.

The favourite ones were the following user names:

  • sa
  • sql
  • admin
  • administrator
  • administrador
  • root
  • access
  • db
  • database
  • datenbank
  • saadmin
  • web
  • webadmin
  • master
  • chef
  • server

So try not to use these user names and – if possible – don’t make your SQL Server visible outside.
