rasbian default ssh root password

This shouldnt be so hard to find. I had a hell of a time trying to find the root password for rasbian on my raspberry pi. There are a lot of places that claim that the username is "pi" but this is not true. use root.

user: root
pass: raspberry

once you ssh in, change it using the passwd command. to ssh in, find the thing's IP and type ssh root@THE_IP
