The configure log (both on-screen and on-disk) contains plaintext passwords for any PASSWORD type item.

This is a very bad thing - and a day 1 bug.

Re-opening this:

  • configurationlog.txt entry with *************** had newline missing, e.g was merged with next line.
  • 5.1 branch needs to be patched as well.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 2013-01-02

This is now fixed in trunk and 5.1 branch.

Thanks Timothe for reporting and fixing!

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 2013-01-02

I am re-opening this due to a uninitialized value error bug.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 2013-02-08

This is now fixed in trunk and 5.1 branch.
