Panoramic Software has released version 1.8.3 of their popular Twitter client, moTweets. This release specifically fixes a security issue identified by twitter user @mus_hi, namely that previous moTweets versions store your twitter password in an unencrypted state in the accounts.xml file. This update is highly recommended as having passwords in plain text makes them vulnerable to any number of attacks. Additionally, changing your password would also be recommended.
The update is available directly from Panoramic Software, and includes a couple of additional features. For more details, visit the moTweets product page and version history.
