FileMaker security issue

Hi developers,

 

recently I forgot a password of .fp7 database. I was searching the web for a solution and came across this software http://www.lostpassword.com/filemaker.htm Since that was the only way for solving my problem I used it. Solution made new admin account to .fp7 database file and I was able to login with full privileges.

 

Although I was happy it brought a big question to my mind…. "What if this .fp7 database was not mine?" This solution-software would allow me to use or I would rather say reuse someones work, know-how and make money from it.

 

In my opinion this is a big security issue in FileMaker software although mentioned software currently does not support FM12 it is just a matter of time when it will.

 

How do you fellow developers comment this?

 

Regards,

Janez
