[Resolved] Serious issue with showing keys s3

  • Hi

    all the secret login details are visible in plugin page, this is not good, these should be hidden as it poses a big security risk if someone hacked into wordpress admin, they would then be able to hack into S3 then use those details to hack into other systems, they would also then have bank details , etc from amazon S3 account

    the pathway to hacking is available from those two simple secure keys visible

    thanks

    Hi scruffy1,

    Please consult the FAQs, where this question is addressed, and the reason why your analysis is mistaken is explained. (If you rely on passwords being starred out for your security, then you have very seriously misunderstood what the starring out means – this is all explained in the FAQ).

    Best wishes,
    David
