comment Using mysqldump in cron job without root password
I think the point is that MechSoftware was making is that being root essentially gives you read access to database files, and they are not encrypted. Therefore, requiring root MySQL password from the root user only to pretty print the data they essentially already can access is "security through obscurity". Besides, permissions are very easy to mess up, e.g. if someone is setting them recursively for a directory, if there's a symbolic link to the file etc.

comment Why is SSH password authentication a security risk?
But with a, say, 96-bit entropy password the bruteforcing time would still be astronomical, even with thousands of computers.
