Doc Text:
An information-disclosure flaw was found in the way that gluster-block logs the output from gluster-block CLI operations. This includes recording passwords to the cmd_history.log file which is world-readable. This flaw allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading the log file. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to data confidentiality.

Description Hardik Vyas 2020-06-08 12:02:11 UTC
gluster-block records the output from gluster-block cli to cmd_history.log and gluster-blockd.log (cmd_history.log journals all the cli operations). The block volume create/modify/info commands will contain sensitive information such as passwords which will be stored into these world readable log files cmd_history.log and gluster-blockd.log. This issue has been introduced since gluster-block-v0.2.1 release.

Comment 3 Hardik Vyas 2020-06-08 12:02:21 UTC

Manually change the log files permission to remove readable bits for others, e.g;

# chmod 640 /var/log/glusterfs/gluster-block/cmd_history.log

NOTE: The above mitigation only restricts access to the other local users. To avoid storing passwords to the log file, kindly update  gluster-block to the fixed version.

Comment 6 RaTasha Tillery-Smith 2020-06-08 17:04:15 UTC

The version of gluster-block shipped with Red Hat Gluster Storage 3 sets the world-readable permissions on gluster-block directory and log files that store the sensitive information, hence affected by this vulnerability.
