Exposure of Private Personal Information to an Unauthorized Actor in GitHub repository gnuboard/gnuboard5 prior to and including 5.5.5. A vulnerability in gnuboard v5.5.5 and below uses weak encryption algorithms leading to sensitive information exposure. This allows an attacker to derive the email address of any user, including when the ‘Let others see my information.’ box is ticked off. Or to send emails to any email address, with full control of its contents

Weakness

The software stores or transmits sensitive data using an encryption scheme that is theoretically sound, but is not strong enough for the level of protection required.
