Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-09-17 15:15:47 UTC
An information leak flaw was found in the way Bacula, a cross platform network backup tool, enforced access control list (ACL) rules prior providing information about a particular resource. A remote attacker could use this flaw to obtain (possibly sensitive) information.
