    Solved ts3clientui_qt.conf and ts3clientui_qt.secrets.conf

    Hi all,
    It just strikes me today it is really strange that server login password is stored in ts3clientui_qt.secrets.conf, which has the file header:

    ;WARNING!!
    ;THIS FILE CONTAINS ALL SAVED PASSWORDS AND IDENTITIES FOR TEAMSPEAK 3
    ;DO NOT SHARE THIS FILE WITH ANYONE, NOT EVEN YOUR HOSTER OR TEAMSPEAK-SYSTEMS.
    ;DOING SO, CAN RESULT IN UNAUTHORIZED PERSONS GAINING ACCESS TO YOUR SERVERS,
    ;AND EVEN WORSE, THEY CAN IMPERSONATE YOU AND THE SERVERS WILL NOT BE ABLE
    ;TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM AND YOU!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!
    (Hint: Note the word "all saved passwords and ids for teamspeak 3" =_=)
    Yet, the server administration password is stored in ts3clientui_qt.conf, which has no such language in it.

    Slide=true
    ToolIndex=0
    Auth=1
    AuthLogin=serveradmin
    AuthPassword=[Password in plaintext. Obviously I removed it before I pasted it here lol]

    It may give the misconception that it is safe for server admins to transmit their client config file to others, then they realizes later that they have given server admin query access to them instead lol. (Of course my server has been blocked from remote admin from day 1 and I never did this )

    If it's not too big of a change, my suggestion is move the admin password to the secret file as well so there's no misunderstanding.

    P.S.: My platform is mac, updated to the newest version.

    But one is a password for server or a channel and the other one is the setting for the integrated query admin tool.
    I send that to a developer lets wait for the reply.

    Edit
    I create a ticket for this suggestion into our system.
    Our team will discuss about and will reply in that thread.
