nnposter has reported a security issue in SafeWord RemoteAccess, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to disclose sensitive information.
The problem is due to storing sensitive information base-64 encoded in [application_directory]\SERVERS\Web\Tomcat\usercenter\WEB-INF\login.conf and as plaintext in [application_directory]\SERVERS\Shared\signers.cfg with insecure permissions. This can be exploited to disclose the UserCenter webportal password and database encryption and signing keys.
The security issue is reported in version 2.1. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: The vendor recommends only granting trusted users access to the system.
