The "sa" account (often setup with a blank password because the setup file

already written a "Microsoft SQL Server information gathering script"). A
check for a blank password might be okay (and possibly the password "sa"?),

Thanks for the info.

but nmap probably isn't the best place to test for passwords, and I suspect
people would like to avoid accidentally locking out accounts or potentially
cause a denial of service (for any service).

We have categories to deal with this issue.  So a DB password checking
script would be good to have, but probably shouldn't be in the "safe"
category.
