EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : authconfig (EulerOS-SA-2017-1195)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 103033
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the authconfig packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- A flaw was found where authconfig could configure sssd in a way that treats existing and non-existing logins differently, leaking information on existence of a user. An attacker with physical or network access to the machine could enumerate users via a timing attack.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected authconfig package.
