in thread plaintext password in scripts run through cron

Well that's unfortunate. I guess you're better off avoiding environment variables for that sort of thing then, although Solaris and Tru64 don't supply that info in /proc. I don't know about other OS's.

    Just because they don't provide it in /proc doesn't mean it isn't available. I used linux as an example just because it's available so easily, but the environment is not safe on most platforms, not just linux.
