    Hotline Connect is a suite of two free applications that enables Internet users to communicate and share files and information. A security vulnerability in the product allows local users with access to a shared Hotline program installation directory, to access other people's used username and passwords.


    Vulnerable systems:
    Hotline Client version 1.8.5

    The Hotline client contains a feature that allows users to store bookmarks to certain sites they frequently visit. The "Bookmarks" directory (usually under: program files\hotline communications ltd) contains a file that inside it you can find your login, password and host stored in plaintext.
