LoadRunner Support Tip: Vugen RTS file displays Username and Password in text format

When you provide the username and password for proxy authentication in the Run-time settings of Vugen 12.XX.


This information gets stored in the default.cfg  file of the Vugen script folder and when you edit this file, the same username and password is displayed in text format.


This gets disclosed to anyone who access the vugen script and also when trying to export this RTS file. This is a security issue for the organization.


This is a known issue with the LoadRunner and this issue will be fixed in the upcoming release of LR 12.50.
