Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200807-10 (Bacula: Information disclosure)

Matthijs Kooijman reported that the 'make_catalog_backup' script uses     the MySQL password as a command line argument when invoking other     programs.

Impact :

A local attacker could list the processes on the local machine when the     script is running to obtain the MySQL password. Note: The password     could also be disclosed via network sniffing attacks when the script     fails, in which case it would be sent via cleartext e-mail.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
