The admin plugin has a undocumented default-value for --admin-password (see #53014).

How to repeat:
        if (!config->admin_username) config->admin_username = g_strdup("root");
        if (!config->admin_password) config->admin_password = g_strdup("secret");

Suggested fix:
remove the default value and force the user to provide a setting if the admin plugin is loaded.
