Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-03-25 13:38:53 UTC
An information disclosure flaw was found in the way Moodle, a course management system, stored WebDav repository password (it was stored in plaintext on repository configuration form). A remote attacker (logged in as Moodle administrator user) could use this flaw to obtain sensitive information.
