Fedora 14 : libuser-0.56.18-3.fc14 (2011-0316)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Fixes default userPassword value on LDAP; note that this affects only
accounts for which the password was not changed later. In addition to
installing this update, maintainers of LDAP servers used for
authentication should review their LDAP directory for unexpected
plaintext userPassword values.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
