IpConfig/ShowPass Registry Key NAME IpConfig/ShowPass DEFAULT disabled DESCRIPTION Failed Console login attempts, which are failed Telnet login attempts, are logged to the access.log file. This port is a favored target for those seeking malicious access to a device. The log entry shows the remote IP address attempting entry along with the username. When this Registry key is enabled the password tried is also displayed. It is not recommended that this feature be used at length since a typographic error by a legitimate user might reveal the user's password by logging it. This is useful in determining the source of the activity. Bots repeatedly use a sequence of common passwords from a dictionary. A bad actor familiar with the JNIOR would try default passwords. You may wish to know if someone is specifically trying to attack your JNIOR. [/flash/manpages/registry.hlp:777]
