Description Jakub Filak 2014-12-02 11:48:05 UTC
There are plenty of applications using environment variables for passing credentials to programs. libreport must have a black list of such environment  variables and must clear all of them. libreport also must allow users to provide their own black list of cleared environment variables.

OpenStack : OS_*
Amazon EC2 : AWS_*
OpenNebula : ONE_*
Vmware : VI_*
Rackspace : NOVA_*
DigitalOcean : DO_*
