Omero ImageJ plugin shows password in log window

Hello,
we just installed omero-server in our facility with some help of the IT (web 5.6.3, insight 5.5.11). It works really nice, thanks!

I noticed that when using the omero plugin I downloaded from the omero website, Plugins > OMERO > Connect to OMERO the password is displayed as plain text in the log window.
This seems like a heavy security breach. How is the password transferred? As plain text? Many of us use LDAP so this is the main password connecting to the service of the institute.

Thanks for your help

Antonio

Thanks Antonio for the report.
We are aware of the problem and are looking into the problem

See https://github.com/ome/omero-insight/issues/136

A new version of the plugin is now available https://github.com/ome/omero-insight/releases/tag/v5.5.12
You will also need to be sure to have the latest version of Bio-Formats in the path.
