While some may spend their weekends lounging poolside or at toddler birthday parties, some sit and hack. We're glad in this case, as Cory (our Android Central Forums admin) found something that a good number of us need to be careful about -- in many cases your passwords are stored as plain text in internal databases. We spent a good portion of our Saturday tracking down the issues, scouring Google's code bugs pages, testing various phones running various ROMs, and even calling in the pros for clarification. Hit the break to see what was found, and what you might need to watch for if you've rooted your phone. [Android Central forums] And big props to Cory!
