Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.

Description :

An update for ovirt-engine-extension-aaa-jdbc is now available for
RHEV Engine version 4.0.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security
impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each
vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

AAA-JDBC is an extension which allows to store authentication and
authorization data in relational database and provides these data
using standardized oVirt AAA API similarly to already existing
AAA-LDAP extension.

Security Fix(es) :

* When updating a password in the rhvm database the
ovirt-aaa-jdbc-tool tools fail to correctly check for the current
password if it is expired. This would allow access to an attacker with
access to change the password on accounts with expired passwords,
gaining access to those accounts. (CVE-2017-2614)

This issue was discovered by Dominic Geevarghes (Red Hat).
