Created redis tracking bugs for this issue:
Affects: fedora-all [bug 1363671]
Affects: epel-all [bug 1363672]
Fixed upstream in Redis 3.2.3 Released Tue Aug 02 10:55:24 CEST 2016
Redis-cli created the history file with insecure permissions, allowing reading from the file. This was actually a bug in linenoise which is now fixed. The applied fix is from Chris Lamb.
Red Hat Product Security has rated this issue as having security impact of Low.
Further, home directories are not world readable on RHEL distributions (by default). This issue is not currently planned to be addressed in future
