basher13 has discovered a security issue in Savant Web Server, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to disclose potentially sensitive information.
The problem is that user credentials are stored with insecure permissions in "HKLM\SOFTWARE\DAEMONS\Savant\Users" in the Windows registry. This can be exploited to disclose server usernames and passwords.
The security issue has been confirmed in version 3.1. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Grant only trusted users access to affected systems.
