WON passwords aren’t secure

Contributed by: ITO Takayuki
This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

If you’re security-minded, note that WON passwords are stored in /boot/home/config/settings/da_hood_pwd in plain text. Anybody with access to your machine who knows where to look will be able to read them.
