Exclamation Kindle Touch stores WiFi passwords in plain text on user partition

Hello.
I found something interesting/shocking:

/mnt/us/system/WifiCfg.ini

Here I can find the name and password of my WiFi in plain text. I think this is quite a serious security problem because if someone takes your kindle for just a few seconds they can break into your WiFi with ease.

PS: I have a Kindle Touch with firmware 5.3.2 .
PPS: I also have Duokan in a dual boot configuration it seems that it may be the culprit. Sorry for the false alarm...
