Most who have replierd are either just dismissive or seem to just want to add to their ridiculous post count rather than discuss a potential massive flaw in BT's password allocation.

 

You all are obviously all engineering experts.

You all are obviously all engineering experts.  - are you???

 

you have no idea the qualifications of anyone else

 

just reset the password to something you think is more secure and be done with it - most people reset it anyway so it is something they can remember

You are the one who says there is a flaw based upon what one person telling you.

 

It would therefore be incumbent of you or your professional security chap to back up and prove this assertion with some facts. If you or he are unable to do that then it is just an assertion.

 

Until you or he can do that there is nothing to discuss.

Do you seriously think that this wouldn't be all over the press if it were true? Please post some proof of this assertion, not just some hearsay.

Re: Router Wireless Password

Has your "professional security chap" given you any proof of his assertion yet so that we can challenge BT and inform everybody including the IT press and the general press about BT's statement "'We don't recommend changing the password because the one we give you is already very secure. "

 

If he hasn't yet please post back as soon as he does because that would be a very serious issue which I am surprised they are not already aware of or perhaps they are colluding with BT to cover it up, who knows.
