Norman Internet Update Deamon sends cleartext license key on update

I just discovered, that the linux norman internet update deamon
(niu) sends our corporate license key in cleartext over http when
the first update is triggered. Output of niu --trace shows

SelectNextValServer (1): first: 0
ExtractValServer: 0 from niuone.norman.no: Found niuone.norman.no
sAuthUrl=niuone.norman.no/scripts/NIUSrv.dll?GetUpdateInfo?1$asdfa-asdfa-asdfa-

               asdfa-asdfa$000020022050205220702072208020822$5(117)

asdfa-asdfa-asdfa-asdfa-asdfa is our key.

Norman confirmed the bug but did not provide a timeline for any updates.

Regards
