DCOM Security.

I’m unfamiliar with Microsofts component services.
A client of mine has a local workgroup application that creates a connection (ipsec) to a domain server, the 
application calls a server component (dcom) via anonymous access. The developer has a password embedded with in the 
local app to authenticate the anonymous account.  From this point the component forwards over a request to another 
server for a Foxpro database (without any additional security). Is there a way to exploit the anonymous account if the 
workgroup client were to get compromised?  How concerned should I be with the possibility of the code being decompiled? 
 Additionally the programmer has domain credentials hard coded into the application in order to perform an upload of 
information that is created.  Suggestions?  Thank you in advance
