Summary0001700: Mysql password and user passwords

Here is my problem ... I see all password in clear text on my server.

In PF configuration : /usr/local/pf/conf/pf.conf
We can find the password of the MySQL database (ie pass=p@...).

I connect to the DB with this password.

Now i can see all the tables used in PF. And i can see all user passwords
in table 'temporary_password'.
Next i try to change the admin password in the DB and it works !

This is a security issue ? How to remedy this problem and replace passwords
by hashes ?



PS : I already talk about this issue on the user mailing list
Additional InformationHere commands i used (non root) :
grep -E '(pass(word)?=).*' -nR --color /usr/local/pf/conf/

mysql -u pf -pp@... pf


SELECT * from temporary_password;

UPDATE temporary_password SET password='123456' WHERE pid='admin';*

and connect to the admin web interface.
