Description Lee Newson 2014-01-17 01:27:28 UTC
Description of problem:

Using the account service via the REST API anyone is able to get a users api key, provided they know their username.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Tested on 3.2.1 (20131129-0009)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to <HOST>/rest/accounts/u/{username} without providing any auth details (where {username} is the name of a user in the system).
2. Observe the api key is returned in the response.

Actual results:
A users api key is exposed to anyone.

Expected results:
A users api key (or even user information) should only be exposed to it's owner or people with adequate permissions (ie admins).
