arcgis database connection security

I am wondering about the password security in database authenticated connections files (e.g. connection.sde) when the password is saved in the connection file. Are the passwords encrypted in the connection file? In other words would it be possible for a users on the system to extract the password for a database user (like sde!) from a connection file? Not that we have sde user connections sitting around for the average user to stumble across but you get the idea...
