Comcast storing WiFi passwords in cleartext?

I think we all understand the value of using oneâ??s own equipment and keeping the firmware up to date if one is in any way concerned about security.  We all should also understand that in a managed environment such as an ISP there should be no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding the configuration of the equipment attached to the ISP's network (rented or customer owned).

The bigger concern should be the cleartext portion of the subject.  Thereâ??s ZERO reason to store or transmit any credentials (login, service, keys, etc.), in any location, in an unencrypted fashion regardless of their perceived value or purpose.  Unless you like risk.
