Subject: CVE Request for information leak in Etherpad exports

A vulnerability was discovered in Etherpad (see below). In order to
ensure full traceability, we need a CVE number assigned that we can
attach to further notifications. This issue is already public.

Title: Information leak in Etherpad exports
Reporter: webzwo0i
Versions: 1.5.0 through 1.5.1

webzwo0i reported a vulnerability in the export functionality of
current Etherpad releases. When exporting a padID all pads for which
the requested ID is a substring are also returned, regardless of
access restriction, resulting in an information leak. This includes
group pads created via the API.

This bug was introduced in commit 1081156 which was initially
included in the 1.5.0 release, and is fixed in commit a0fb652 which
will appear in a future 1.5.2 release.
