The rhevm-log-collector utility allows users to easily collect log files from all systems in their Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environment.
It was found that rhevm-log-collector called sosreport with the PostgreSQL database password passed as a command line parameter. A local attacker could read this password by monitoring a process listing. The password would also be written to a log file, which could potentially be read by a local attacker. (CVE-2014-3561)
This issue was discovered by David Jorm of Red Hat Product Security.
All rhevm-log-collector users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch to correct this issue.
