    Am I correct assuming the password is stored in MySQL? What encryption is used? Would it be easy for an external program to access this password (running on server)?

    It is in the database. There are varying formats for the password, though the default is bcrypt. It would be possible for this to be accessed via the database directly, though this would require custom coding to authenticate.
