We found account name and clear text password in the file /opt/IMDataAggregator/apache-karaf-2.3.0/etc/dbconnection.cfg used by Data Aggregator to connect with Data Repository. This will expose the DR connection account and password to other users with that file(dbconnection.cfg) read authority.
Suggest to encrypt the password in this file in the next IM2 version. Thanks.

dbUser and dbAdmin (database) passwords are stored encrypted with v3.5. There is also an encryption tool in case the passwords need to be updated.

Thank you for raising this issue.  Host security goes a long way, but there's really no excuse for storing plain text passwords on disk.  I'll review with the engineering team.

This is a big problem. It should be relatively simple to apply a basic hash to the password values. This is still in clear text in 3.1.
