Database Credentials Disclosed By pin_rel Process
Last updated on SEPTEMBER 19, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 22.214.171.124.0 to 126.96.36.199.0 [Release 7.3.0 to 7.5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
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 ?
