I just found out that my passwords were saved without any encryption in the following file:

C:\Documents and Settings\[USERNAME]\Application Data\.purple\accounts.xml

I think this poses an enormous treat. This happened under windows XP and 7 with MSN messenger.
Could you please make it so that the file gets encrypted?
