Description

snap in powerpc-utils 1.2.20 produces an archive with fstab and yaboot.conf files potentially containing cleartext passwords, and lacks a warning about reviewing this archive to detect included passwords, which might allow remote attackers to obtain sensitive information by leveraging access to a technical-support data stream.

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.
