Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Prior to this update, if the user defined passwords in the /etc/fstab and /boot/grub/grub.conf files, the sosreport utility included these passwords into the report. Consequently, the report tarball contained the passwords, either in plain text format or hashed, which was considered insecure. With this update, sosreport excludes passwords and other secrets when generating the report. As a result, /etc/fstab and /boot/grub/grub.conf collected in the report tarball do not contain the passwords.
