WebLogin + WinLogin webcredentials.ini unencrypted

Post by m0rph » Sat Jun 22, 2019 10:16 am

Hi

Why the login information for the Weblongin + Windows login saved in a unencrypted file !?
That can not be a problem to save the information in a encrypted format ??!!

C:\Program Files (x86)\TSplus\UserDesktop\files\webcredentials.ini

[m0rph]
WebPassword=unencrypted WebPassword
WinUser=m0rph
WinPassword=unencrypted Win Password

Hi.

I know it will sound strange, but I do like it this way. I have written a program to let my users change their own webcredential password and since the webcredentials.ini is plain text, I was able to modify it and save from my application. If it were encrypted, I wouldn't be able to do so.
In my case, if TSplus encrypted the file, they would have to offer a way for the users themselves to change their own webcredential login password, otherwise it would drive my support team crazy having to do it for the user everytime they wanted it changed.

Cheers.

Ivan
