Trac registration email sends password in email

Reported by: vpribish@… Owned by: wsiegrist@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: server/hosting Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: security Cc:


When creating a new account on a registration email is sent containing my plaintext password. This is embarrassingly insecure.

I think there is a config for trac that tells it to skip sending the password.

The registration screen should at least warn the user that the password will be mailed out.
