System administrators at my site are concerned about my running bugzilla in one 
of their machines since users tend to use the same password for bugzilla and 
for their login account in the other machines. This password being plaintext in 
the DB mekes it available to the bugzilla admin (me) at any time.

Password should be only stored in it's encrypted form on the DB.

I agree, this is a concern of mine, too, for my local system.

Do keep in mind that unless you're using SSL, the passwords are transmitting in 
cleartext over the network, too (if everyone's inside a firewall, this part might 
not be a big deal).

Marking 2.14 since this is a security issue.
Target Milestone: --- → Bugzilla 2.14
Making this bug depend on bug 77473 because existing installations will have to
re-crypt their user's passwords when that fix is applied, and they need to keep
the plain-text versions of those passwords around until then in order to be able
to do that.
Depends on: 77473
