For us and i guess for many others public cloud and vps providers its very big hole.
Imagine that 10-20 chinese guys have made fraud orders and 10-20 vps are provisioned.
We dealing with fradulent orders daily basis.
Some time later abusers will get catch in the act and vpses will be terminated.
If your customer increase is considerable, most probably one or more ips will be given to
new customers during same day.
Newly created instances get then abusers keys and root passwords.
If new instance uses only keys, root password will be never changed.
Abusers need just log in with them old passwords and bitcoin mining or spamming will be started
Some of smarter customers are able to connect dots and serviceprovider reputation will be
damaged seriously.

Lugupidamisega / Regards

update the key and password to get in. No harm done or am I overlooking
