Highest overall severity: Medium


Summary:

Tableau Sever logs the password used to authenticate to the SMTP server. The password is stored encrypted in the parameter, svcmonitor.notification.smtp.password. However, the password is logged in plaintext when an email is sent by Tableau Server.


Impact:

An attacker with access to the Tableau Server logs can learn the account and password used to authenticate to the SMTP server.
