Oracle Forms Builder Password in Temp Files
Oracle Formsbuilder 9.0.4 creates temp files (e.g. s5hs.1htm) in the local temp (%TEMP%) directory. These temp-files contain the username and password of the current database connection entered in the Formsbuilder. After closing Formsbuilder these files are not deleted.
This security issued was introduced in Formsbuilder 9.0.4 to avoid another security issue in older versions of Formsbuilder (cleartext passwords in the Apache log file).

Set the environment variable TMP, TEMP and TMPDIR to a secure location and delete the temp directory on a regular basis.
