File descriptor leak in cronie 1.4.8, when running in certain environments, might allow local users to read restricted files, as demonstrated by reading /etc/crontab.

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.
