Credentials are transmitted to server in plain text

Dear Team,

As part of ASLC review by ICICI security team, Subjected point "Credentials are transmitted to server in plain text" is open for fix. To close this point, We have been following up with Osman (Product Team) from several months since it cannot be fixed with usual process. As per ICICI security team, this should be closed and may not get further extension for exception. 

Report from ICICI Security team and other details attached.

""Credentials are transmitted to server in plain text: Open

Justification: An adversary can strip SSL and intercept plain text credentials using sniffer tools like fiddler, burp suite. Credentials thus obtained may be used to gain unauthorized access to the application.""

For your reference, please find the PoC of another application where credentials are being transmitted in an encryption manner.

FYR, Vendor has raised PMR case with subject "UCD Security Scan result review request. "
