Grouper has a security vulnerability, affecting the following versions of Grouper:


- 2.5.36

- 2.5.37


You are affected if you using one of these versions and have secrets in plain text in environment variables in the Grouper container.  On startup the container prints out all env vars to the container logs.


This could lead to those at your institution who can view container logs to be able to view passwords that were in plain text in env vars.  For full details, please see the advisory linked below.


Thanks to JJ at Unicon for identifying this problem.

These two containers ( and are identical to the previous version but have only this issue fixed (and OS updates).  When 2.5.38+ is out, this is fixed there too.
