Description Andrej Nemec 2017-04-26 08:52:15 UTC
The salt-ssh minion code in SaltStack Salt copies over configuration from the Salt Master without adjusting permissions, which might leak credentials to local attackers on configured minions (clients).

Comment 1 Andrej Nemec 2017-04-26 08:54:01 UTC
Created salt tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: epel-all [bug 1418350]

Comment 2 Siddharth Sharma 2017-04-26 12:33:12 UTC
Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of the salt as shipped with Red Hat Ceph Storage 1.3, Red Hat Ceph Storage 2, and Red Hat Storage Console 2 as salt-ssh is not used with these products.
