PowerCMSConnection.php adminpassword or other

Question: if I use username "admin" in the powercmsconnection will there then be a security risk that people can see the admin password? Can people hack into the powercmsconnection.php file?

I have set up a site with powercms and other tables. Everything works fine. But for security reason i wonder how to use mysql priviliges and powercmsconnectioin. If i use an mysql admin user i can update insert and so for ex. for update user registration. But if i use powercmsconnection username as mysql quest where there are only view priviliges it does not function.
