An issue was discovered in CIRCONTROL Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) before 1.5.0, as used in CirCarLife, PowerStudio, and other products. Due to storage of credentials in XML files, an unprivileged user can look at /services/config/config.xml for the admin credentials of the ocpp and circarlife panels.

Weakness

The product transmits or stores authentication credentials, but it uses an insecure method that is susceptible to unauthorized interception and/or retrieval.
