Description Summer Long 2017-03-13 02:12:42 UTC
Description of problem:
The directory /var/log/openvswitch 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/openvswitch 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):
openvswitch-2.4.0-2.el7_2

Steps to reproduce:
$ ls -la /var/log/openvswitch
total 36
drwxr-xr-x.  2 root root    52 Mar  5 23:44 .
drwxr-xr-x. 25 root root  4096 Mar 12 22:04 ..
-rw-r--r--.  1 root root  2487 Mar 12 22:04 ovsdb-server.log
-rw-r--r--.  1 root root 27615 Mar 12 22:05 ovs-vswitchd.log
