Are Beans Safe

I am writing an application using JSP, Servlets & Beans (no EJB). One of its first pages is the validation of a user and password. How safe is it to store sensitive information such as passwords, credit card details etc in a bean? Is there anyway that other processes "can get to it". I would imagine scope is important. What guidelines can anyone offer here?
Thanks

hi,
As for of security issues servlet/jsp and bean are safe. But it all depends how you use it. Server setting used for deployment, OS in which server running, Ports opened in server etc, Protocol(http ,https)etc
