Description

LanItems.ycp in save_y2logs in yast2-network before 2.24.4 in SUSE YaST writes cleartext Wi-Fi credentials to the y2log log file, which allows context-dependent attackers to obtain sensitive information by reading the (1) WIRELESS_WPA_PASSWORD or (2) WIRELESS_CLIENT_KEY_PASSWORD field.

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.
