Description Laura Pardo 2018-06-14 20:19:44 UTC
RH Directory Server provides a functionality named retroChangelog that records in a file an attribute with the password in clear text. The attribute is named *unhashed#user#password*. This allows any administrator, having the rights to read (dump) the database, to retrieve the password in clear text.

Comment 4 Cedric Buissart 🐶 2018-06-27 13:38:08 UTC
Closing as duplicate of 1591480 : it is the same nsslapd-unhashed-pw-switch attribute that regulates both retroChangelog & replica plugins behavior.
