Stored password displayed on screen and in log file

When establishing a connection saved in WinSCP GUI, the program displays the password in plain text on the console and in the log file.

Establish a session in the GUI and store the password, then in a script, establish a connection using the saved information

Script:
open test@testserver.com

GUI & Log:
In scripting you should not rely on saved sites, use this command instead:
open ftp://test:UnencryptedPassword@testserver.com/

Expected: Do not display the stored password
