A vulnerability has been reported in FlashGet, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain knowledge of certain sensitive information.
The problem is that dial-up user credentials are stored in plain text in the registry in a location readable by all users. This may disclose the user's username and password information to other user's on the system.
The vulnerability has been reported in versions 0.9 through 1.2.
Solution: The vulnerability may have been fixed in later versions, though this hasn't been confirmed.
