Description John Helmert III archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2023-06-19 02:44:15 UTC

An issue was discovered in the C AMQP client library (aka rabbitmq-c) through 0.13.0 for RabbitMQ. Credentials can only be entered on the command line (e.g., for amqp-publish or amqp-consume) and are thus visible to local attackers by listing a process and its arguments.
