prpcUtils import not working if password has '&' character in it


Our DB password contains a & character (This cannot be updated because the passwords are automatically generated and we have no control over this password setting in production)

When this password is procided to the import utility. We get a SAX parser exception saying that its a malformed xml because this value is substituted by the import utility into the prconfig.xml as <env name="database/databases/PegaRULES/password" value="&%&s#m" />. (I believe this happens because & is a control character in xml)

I tried escaping the & character by replacing & with &amp; but then we receive a database logon failure.

Please help me with a solution for this.
