FreeBSD : ansible - subversion password leak from PID (67dbeeb6-80f4-11ea-bafd-815569f3852d)

low Nessus Plugin ID 135730

Language:

New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.

Description

Borja Tarraso reports :

A flaw was found in Ansible 2.7.16 and prior, 2.8.8 and prior, and 2.9.5 and prior when a password is set with the argument 'password' of svn module, it is used on svn command line, disclosing to other users within the same node. An attacker could take advantage by reading the cmdline file from that particular PID on the procfs.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
