Details

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
CAN-2005-1760 to this issue.

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


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
