RHSA-2005-502: sysreport

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the sysreport packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated sysreport package that fixes an information disclosure flaw is
now available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team

Sysreport is a utility that gathers information about a system's hardware
and configuration. The information can then be used for diagnostic purposes
and debugging.

When run by the root user, sysreport includes the contents of the
/etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date configuration file. If up2date has been
configured to connect to a proxy server that requires an authentication
password, that password is included in plain text in the system report.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name
CVE-2005-1760 to this issue.

Users of sysreport should update to this erratum package, which contains a
patch that removes any proxy authentication passwords.
