Subject [GitHub] cloudstack pull request: Cloudstack 8868: use

Github user bhaisaab commented on the pull request:
    I think the PasswordGenerator.generateRandomPassword (from utils) is not secure at all
for small lengths (such as the default 6), since it's not really random ("random 3-character
string with a lowercase character, uppercase character, and a digit" + random n-character
string with only lowercase characters") and one could create a rainbow table to attempt to
get into systemvms. In case of uservms, it is advised to change the password; but in case
of systemvms it will be an issue. In case of systemvms, may be we can still directly use the
PasswordGenerator util but increase the length to 24 or 32 or 24+rand integer?
