comment How can we change root password?
Without SSH (or, presuming any of the other, scarily insecure methods like rsh or telnet), you don't have remote access to the machine, so you can't change the password. Unless of course the target computer has a known remotely exploitable issue which can help you somehow spawn a shell. The thought terrifies me more than a telnet daemon running on it. :)
