>                 Key: DIRSTUDIO-971
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSTUDIO-971
>             Project: Directory Studio
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: studio-connection
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-M8 (2.0.0.v20130628)
>         Environment: Linux
>            Reporter: Andrew Findlay
>
> Connection parameters are stored in the file connections.xml
> This can include bind DNs and passwords, which are stored in clear text.
> The file is globally-readable, exposing these passwords to great risk.
> Another bug notes that encrypted storage would be better, but please at least set the
file mode so that it can only be read by its owner.
> The file is re-created every time a connection is edited, so changing the file mode by
hand does not solve the problem. A possible workaround for Linux is:
> chmod 700 ~/.ApacheDirectoryStudio
