Database Credentials Disclosed By pin_rel Process (Doc ID 1534011.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 19, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 7.3.0.0.0 to 7.5.0.0.0 [Release 7.3.0 to 7.5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

On BRM 7.3.0, when listing processes (Unix command "ps") running on filesystem while rated usage events are being loaded into database through REL, one can see the sqlldr process executed by pin_rel process is listed along with the database credentials. One could  perceive this as security issue.

How to overcome this issue ? Has this been addressed in later versions of BRM ?
