Starting an export (using File / Export to / KeepassX XML file) and cancelling it leads to KeepassX saving a cleartext XML file in ~/.xml without any warning. This was reported privately to the Debian security team today, but it was actually reported publicly earlier in the Debian BTS . Unfortunately the maintainer didn't acknowledge the bug or forwarded it upstream, apparently. It's not a terrible bug per se because leaking a user password file on purpose would still require a lot of social engineering skills, but it still look like it should get a CVE (an user explicitly cancelling the export surely doesn't expect its passwords to be there in a hidden file. Can a CVE be assigned for this?  https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=791858[1 -- Yves-Alexis Download attachment "signature.asc" of type "application/pgp-signature" (474 bytes)
