This part of the problem could be reduced if the change was
announced in advance.
It strikes me that announcing in advance "Hey, guys, a number of
accounts INCLUDING n SYSOPS have blank passwords and can easily be
taken over..", then not fixing it for a while, is a recipe for
disaster. It's not that hard to generate a list of users with admin
privileges, and presumably neither is it impossible to write a short
script to try 800 logins...
