Status Candidate

Overview

Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-1121-01 - The sos package contains a set of tools that gather information from system hardware, logs and configuration files. The information can then be used for diagnostic purposes and debugging. The sosreport utility collected the Kickstart configuration file, but did not remove the root user's password from it before adding the file to the resulting archive of debugging information. An attacker able to access the archive could possibly use this flaw to obtain the root user's password. "/root/anaconda-ks.cfg" usually only contains a hash of the password, not the plain text password.
