Dear challengers,

ogon found out that /etc/.git is world readable on the warchall box.
We use git to track changes to the machine config.

Any warchall user password might be affected by that read. (No time to investigate)

If you re-use your warchall password somewhere else, f.e. on wechall.net, it is a good idea to change it.

Thanks go out to ogon for letting us know!

Happy Challenging!

Is it a good idea to change our password now? Or are you still working on fixing it?

I had set the /etc/.git permissions to be not world readable anymore.
So you can change your password.
Also note that this only affects your warchall password, not the wechall one.
