Description Florian Weimer 2013-02-14 07:40:11 EST
InfraStack/OSDependent/Linux/OSAL/Services/wimax_osal_crypt_services.c seems to write unencrypted passwords to the log file.
Comment 5 Jan Lieskovsky 2013-08-08 11:46:00 EDT
A security flaw was found in the way OSAL crypt module of WiMAX, an user space daemon for the Intel 2400m Wireless WiMAX link, used to perform its internal encrypted password setting action (a failed attempt to set the encrypted password was logged into the WiMAX's log file with provided password logged in plaintext form). A local attacker could use this flaw to obtain sensitive information or conduct unauthorized actions on behalf of the user setting the encrypted password.
