As we previously stated, the following issues will be addressed in future releases:

Tenable Identified Issues IDenticard PremiSys Actions
Weak Hashing/Encryption
The current encryption method used for authentication will be replaced with a stronger method such as SHA 256 or bcrypt. The patch release is estimated for February 2019.
Hardcoded Password
The hardcoded password for backup files will be removed in a future release, which is estimated for February 2019. We will provide recommended best practice options for securing backup files to system administrators.
Default Database Credentials (Full Access to Service Databases)
As an immediate, short-term solution, we advise system administrators to replace the default username and password. Please contact our Technical Support Team at (800) 220-8096 for assistance. You may advise your end user system administrators to contact their authorized IDenticard reseller for assistance.

The PremiSys application will be modified to require the end user to configure their unique username and password.
