Locked Desktop screen on Live Cylon Linux 12.04 distro

Hi, does anyone know the username and password of the live Cylon linux? The Operation System locked the screen and now it requires a username and password, I honestly dont know what it is. I booted in live from a USB drive. Ill appreciate any help to solve this little problem, cheers for all Linux users!

Most Linux Live CD systems do not use a password. If you get that window, what happens if you click the unlock tab?. I don't see anything on their site indicating there is a password on the Live CD.
