[wix-users] util:XmlFile logging sensitive info

If that information is already in plain text form in an XML file, wouldn't it also be considered insecure? A bigger question would be why not use integrated authentication, but I assume you are using a different DB that may not support it, or you're in a client/server relationship without a domain.

Subject: [wix-users] util:XmlFile logging sensitive info

I am using util:XmlFile to tweak my DB connection strings, but XmlFile is logging the entire line which includes the user creds, which is not wanted. I know there was a bug (click here<http://wixtoolset.org/issues/3859/>) opened about this issue a while back, but from a disposition standpoint it was marked NotABug and no real solution given (at least not one that was apparent to me). The problem is, I am still seeing the behavior. If there is a solution or workaround, please help.
