      PrimeBase SQL Database Server Clear Text Password Storage
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SUMMARY

    The <http://www.primebase.de> PrimeBase SQL Database Server stores
    passwords in clear text, and based on the installation umask settings
    local users may read this password file.

    DETAILS

    Vulnerable systems:
     * PrimeBase SQL Database Server version 4.2

    From the readme.txt file:
    "The admin server will require you to enter your password in a text file
    called 'password.adm' (in the server folder), before you can continue.
    NOTE: This is the password for access to the Admin Server only."

    Depending on your umask settings (default 022 for root) the "Admin Server"
    password maybe readable by local users. Further, the password is not
    stored as a hash or encrypted. A malicious user could use this password to
    access the web based administration server and compromise the system.

    The database also comes with a default "Administrator" accounts with no
    password. The documentation does recommend the installer set the
    Administrator password during installation.
