Scientific Linux Security Update : ipa on SL7.x x86_64

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Security Fix(es) :

- 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. (CVE-2016-7030)

- 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. (CVE-2016-9575)
