DigitalOcean using same common password for 1-Clicks running MySQL

Have fun scanning before DigitialOcean releases their public notice:
1-Click users potentially remotely exploitable unless they have changed the debian-sys-maint password {MySQL, PHPMyAdmin,LAMP, LEMP, WordPress, OwnCloud}
In the MySQL Debian/Ubuntu packaging, there is an additional MySQL user being created: debian-sys-maint.
Any Droplet created from this common image shares the same password for the MySQL debian-sys-maint user.
