I garantee you that UTelAdSE is more secure then the WebAdmin, why?
simple, UTelAdSE has a 5 second pause on a incorrect login, The WebAdmin
doesn't, thus brute forcing UTelAdSE is much more difficult then brute
forcing the password via the webadmin.

For the rest they have same security issues as in unencrypted

UTelAdSE run's from within the UT2003 server, just like the WebAdmin, so
you damage anything on the server except shutting down the UT2003
Because UTelAdSE runs from within UT2003 connections will be closed on a
map change.
