Cayenne security

Wed Dec 28, 2016 10:57 pm

Hello,
I just installed the cayenne app on my iPad air2. Then I had it locate all the PIs on my local network. Then it asked if I wanted to install the agent software on the selected pi.. it did! How did that happen without me giving it an ID and password? Isn't that a security issue?
I used the remote access and did whoami in lxterm and it came back as root!
Has anyone else observed this behavior? I am on Jessie 419 858.
Thanks..

It definitely seems like a security issue. Have you changed the default password?
