Security

Kuboslav posted 5 years ago in General
Hello there!
At first I want to say that HeidySQL is great, really great.
I have one question - where are stored saved passwords ? I want to know it because of security reason ..

Registry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HeidiSQL\Servers\[Your session name]\Password

The password value is encrypted using a homebrown obscure method, which is not very strong but should be good enough to have it not hacked in 5 seconds.

Thank you for answer. I'm affraid that it's not very secure way.. Have you ever think about storing password encrypted by for example "AES Crypt" and protect them with master password ?

Not yet. As I don't have a clue how to accomplish that using Delphi.
