Description

An information disclosure vulnerability was found in kedpm, a password manager compatible with the figaro password manager file format. The history file can reveal the master password if it is provided on the commandline. The name of entries created or read in the password manager are also exposed in the history file.

For Debian 7

"An information disclosure vulnerability was found in kedpm, a password
manager compatible with the figaro password manager file format. The
history file can reveal the master password if it is provided on the
commandline. The name of entries created or read in the password
manager are also exposed in the history file.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', the master password disclosure issue has been
fixed in version 0.5.0-4+deb7u1. The entries issues has not been fixed
as it requires a rearchitecture of the software.

We recommend that you upgrade your kedpm packages. Note that kedpm has
been removed from the upcoming Debian release ('stretch') and you
should migrate to another password manager as kedpm was abandoned.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description
block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted
to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without
introducing additional issues."
