If you go to the MySQL Configuration in the Admin CP the MySQL password is filled in. Simply by viewing the web page's HTML source you can get the MySQL password. I don't think this should be filled in as standard as potentially, if an exploit is found at some point, a user with malicious intent could easily grab records from the db

BUT, you need Admin permissions to see that page... Do not appoint an Admin you do not trust.
