Vulnerability summary
-------------------------------------------------
If the thin client is configured with `local user must login` then an
unauthenticated attacker with physical access to the thin client can
extract sensitive information onto a USB drive. This information could then
lead to the attacker gaining administrative access to this device and
others on the network.

Technical details
------------------------------------------------
An attacker can use the `generate diagnostic` feature under the `system
logs` tab of the `system information` window to generate a tar ball
containing
sensitive files, such as the `/root` directory including `.bash_history`,
the `registry.xml` file from `/writeable/tmp` and `shadow-` from `/etc`.
These files can be found under their relative path under the `files/`
directory in the generated `Diagnostic.tgz`

Proof of concept
-------------------------------------------------
The following evidence is provided to illustrate the existence and
exploitation:

1. Insert USB drive
2. At the login screen press the wrench icon on the login window
3. Press the `i` icon
4. Select the `System Logs` tab
5. Select `Trace` in the dropdown for the Debug level
6. Click the `Diagnostic` button to generate the `Diagnostic.tgz` file
7. Save file to drive
8. On a different computer extract the file
9. Observe the presence and content of the following files:
  * `files/etc/shadow-`
  * `files/writeable/tmp/registry.xml`
  * `files/root/.bash_history`
