Description Vincent Danen 2013-01-09 10:58:17 EST
It was reported [1],[2] that cronie would leak certain fd's.  On systems where /etc/crontab is not world-readable this could be an information disclosure concern.

This was introduced upstream in cronie 1.4.8 [3] and fixed in 1.4.9 [4], so the only version of cronie that is affected by this issue is 1.4.8.  It was also patched in Fedora via cronie-1.4.8-2.fc15 (see [2] for those details).
