You can and you should! :-) On Windows, only the SYSDBA can change
passwords, including its own. On Linux, the root user can also do it.

Assuming Windows, go into a command shell and cd to the bin directory of
your FB installation. Then do this command to change the SYSDBA password
from 'masterkey' to 'y65re440'

gsec -modify SYSDBA -pw y65re440 -u SYSDBA -password masterkey

On Linux, precede the command with dot-slash:
./gsec -modify SYSDBA -pw y65re440 -u SYSDBA -password masterkey

GSEC also has its own command shell. For doc, see Chapter 34 of The
Firebird Book, or get the OpsGuide.pdf from the IB6 Beta docs set.
