Forgot VSS admin password? No problem!

Very interesting post appears on SourceGear Vault's maillist.

Tried. Works. Having strange feel now. Maybe this is not so serious security problem - to do this one must have a access to server machine's file-system -- but (I do not know why), I really believed that admin password (in VSS) cannot be just removed with few keystrokes...
