Dealing with Text Username and Passwords
This is my first post. I have a question, but I actually have access to 20 years worth of PERL scripting that I am trying to wrap my head around. Alot of it may be on its way out though.
At any rate, I wonder if anyone has come across this problem where a PERL programmer puts lots of text based usernames and passwords in their PERL scripts, including their own personal username and password.
Then they leave the job, and if you disable their account, its going to possibly break alot of things. If you change the administrative accounts used in AD, it breaks the scripts.
How do you deal with this sort of issue? Is there a way to search through all their scripts to find instances of usernames and passwords which you can change for example?
