Title: RedHat Linux Sysreport Proxy Information Disclosure
Description: up2date is the RedHat Update Agent software that allows
users to download official updates and fixes. Sysreport is a utility
designed to collect system information. Proxy authentication
information is stored in the up2date configuration file
"/etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date". When sysreport executes, it discloses
the contents of this file, including proxy authentication usernames
and passwords. All unpatched versions are affected.

We don't support up2date, and never ask for sysreport information.  Closing
