MiniPortal stores sensitive information in plaintext
|miniportal-plaintext-information (8170)||Medium Risk|
MiniPortal stores sensitive information in plaintext. Passwords are stored in plaintext in '.pwd' files, while session and login information is stored in plaintext in the 'mplog.txt' file. A local attacker could obtain this plaintext password, session, and login information from these files to gain further access to sensitive information.
