As the title say, a bug which has been confirmed to be around for 7 years leaks the google account password as well as the 2FA code -if enabled-.
Steps to reproduce the behavior:
Therefore, through logcat is possible to see the password, which is a gigantic security hole. This happens even without root.
Is also important to underline that microG per se has security problems.

I haven’t used logcat so excuse my ignorance, but from what I read it’s a log dumper.
What log file is the login info originally stored in?
Is it plaintext in the log file itself, or is it only plaintext after bring filtered through logcat?
Thanks for sharing
Is it really a bug or a feature? I can imagine a three letter agency providing services and tools to privacy minded people to get their data.
Don’t you need access via adb and have debugging options enabled to even see the logcat?
