Werk #2384: Prevent user passwords from being visible in webserver log on user creation

Component WATO
Title Prevent user passwords from being visible in webserver log on user creation
Date Jun 30, 2015
Checkmk Editon Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 1.2.7i3
Level Trivial Change
Class Security Fix
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

When a user is created using WATO, the set values of the form fields were logged directly into the webserver access log, because the form of this page used the GET request method. Users which have access to the log files would be able to see the initial passwords. If you use an older version of Check_MK it is a good idea to set the "Change password at next login or access" to force the user to change his password on first login.

We changed this form to perform a POST request now to prevent these information being written to the logs.
