CVE-2022-2084 (

Sensitive data could be exposed in world readable logs of cloud-init before version 22.3 when schema failures are reported. This leak could include hashed passwords.

CVE-2021-3429 (

When instructing cloud-init to set a random password for a new user account, versions before 21.2 would write that password to the world-readable log file /var/log/cloud-init-output.log. This could allow a local user to log in as another user.

Please cleanup <22.4.

Ping. Please clean up cloud-init 22.2.2 if possible.
