Hello,
I found a software config document online that gives the user the gateway address, port number, gateway key, liscence key for this product. Im trying to perform risks analysis on what risks have been created by leaking this document online. Can you add your thought so I no I have got them all?

Can you indicate what product you are using?  Is this the gateway address for your ISP, etc?

Then I would consider it a security risk.  You should:

1)  notify the ISP and get new credentials issued
2)  review all logs (or let the ISP do so) to ensure you haven't already been hacked
3)  find out how the document came to be public, and make sure it doesn't happen again
4)  assess possible impact on other systems and repeat the same process.  For example, do the credentials give access to other system passwords?
