Summary

It was discovered that redis, a persistent key-value database, did not properly protect redis-cli history files: they were created by default with world-readable permissions. Users and systems administrators may want to proactively change permissions on existing ~/rediscli_history files, instead of waiting for the updated redis-cli to do so the next time it is run.
