!!SECURTY ISSUE!! opening viclient thru veeam monitor

Post by mwilliamsr »

Fro those whom are security minded. I have notice a security issue accessing vCenter thru veeam Monitor. Wthin task manager on the monitor server, the Uses Passwords are displayed in clear text, if show comman line is selected (Windows 7/2008).
I will show the image name "VpxClient.exe *32" UserName <user> and Command Line: "-i 1 -s <vCenter host> -p <password>"

This requires fixing.
