Description

OI151a7:
Using 'mount' to show mounted filesets (even as a normal user) shows
the password used for mounting (here in case of samba), whereas
OSol 2009.06 U7 (support line version) just shows ** in place of
the password. This is a security problem and should be fixed quickly.

Do you have any information on which release or build first exhibits this problem?

#2

Updated by Udo Grabowski almost 8 years ago

No, I suspect that this was only fixed on the support line of Osol, we just recently saw this when
converting one specific machine to OI-151a7 which had this password-secured smbfs mount.

Better fix attached. (one that works:)

Only show the server name and share name in the mounted resource.
That's sufficient, and makes this a normal "UNC" path.
(the name;password stuff was non-standard anyway.)

#7

Updated by Udo Grabowski almost 8 years ago

A quick workaround until this reaches the distributions is to specify the
user/password information persistently with 'smbutil login user@server' .

#8

Updated by Gordon Ross almost 8 years ago

Right. Another work-around is to put the password in $HOME/.nsmbrc
