Description

The sosreport utility in the Red Hat sos package before 2.2-29 does not remove the root user password information from the Kickstart configuration file (/root/anaconda-ks.cfg) when creating an archive of debugging information, which might allow attackers to obtain passwords or password hashes.

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.
