Synopsis: Moderate: ipa security update
Advisory ID: SLSA-2017:0001-1
Issue Date: 2017-01-02
CVE Numbers: CVE-2016-7030
* It was discovered that the default IdM password policies that lock out
accounts after a certain number of failed login attempts were also applied
to host and service accounts. A remote unauthenticated user could use this
flaw to cause a denial of service attack against kerberized services.
* It was found that IdM’s certprofile-mod command did not properly check
the user’s permissions while modifying certificate profiles. An
authenticated, unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to modify
profiles to issue certificates with arbitrary naming or key usage
information and subsequently use such certificates for other attacks.
