Description Andrej Nemec 2017-04-06 08:13:55 UTC
When images for compute resources (e.g. an OpenStack image) are added/registered in Foreman, the password used to log in is recorded in plain text in the audit log. This may allow users with access to view the audit log to access newly provisioned hosts using the stored credentials.
