(I've researched this beforehand but cannot find a similar enough question, hence this one).

I have a plugin for Visual Studio that crashes; the vendor has asked me to upload a minidump with heap of this crash but Visual Studio fails to write the dump file for some reason

"Error saving dump. The supplied user buffer is not valid for the requested operation"

That error aside (which I cannot find an answer to) I can create a full dump of the crashing process via Process Explorer (which is substantially bigger) but I am concerned as to whether any sensitive info could be revealed (Windows passwords/other login details) that does not belong to the crashing process (is that even possible?) in a full dump.

Do I have reason to be concerned, or is there no way that this dump could contain information other than what the process it is generated for requires?
