The Access Informazion (database, username, password) registered in the TMSConnection - ConnectString how is storage ?
It's possible to decrycpt from exe this information by hacker (if he has access to file) ??

The information is required by a Bank using SOX certification.

If you input a user password in design time, SDAC won't keep it in encrypted format - just in plain form. Therefore the best way is to input the password in connection dialog on start up application.
