    license key visible to all (should it be?)




      Just looked in the CFAdmin (CF10) info area, and have noticed the license key is stored in plain text.

      Should this be so?


      My concern is as a hosting company we have purchased X amount of Enterprise licenses. Some of the servers are hosted as private VPSs, to which we provide admin access (server and CF).
      If a customer of ours decided to go to a competitor there is nothing stopping them seeing our license key, copying it and installing CF themselves on a server not managed by us, thus getting a free license - and we would not know.


      I really think the license key should be hashed.

      Any opinions on this?
