Description Summer Long 2017-03-13 00:46:27 UTC
Description of problem:
The directory /var/log/ironic is world readable and contains log files that are readable, which can result in the exposure of sensitive information. The 'other readable/execute' bits need to be removed from the /var/log/ironic directory.

Because no sensitive data was found in the files, this is being raised as a hardening bug, and not a flaw.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
List /var/log directory for openstack-ironic:

Actual results:
Directory and files are world readable.

Expected results:
Directory and files should not be world readable.

Derek, mind proposing a backport of https://review.rdoproject.org/r/#/c/5258/ please?

Comment 2 Bob Fournier 2017-10-31 13:26:51 UTC
It appears that https://review.rdoproject.org/r/#/c/5258/ has merged so moving this to POST.  Need to track down whether this is in a z release.
