The sosreport utility in the Red Hat sos package before 1.7-9 and 2.x before 2.2-17 includes (1) Certificate-based Red Hat Network private entitlement keys and the (2) private key for the entitlement in an archive of debugging information, which might allow remote attackers to obtain sensitive information by reading the archive.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
