Microsoft MS-SQL Server Installation Password Caching Vulnerability

During the initial installation of Microsoft SQL Server 7 (including MSDE 1.0) and 2000, or when applying service packs, information, sometimes including passwords, is gathered and stored in a file on the host computer. Prior to MS-SQL Server 7.0 SP4, these passwords were stored in clear text in the file.
