Fedora 11 : sssd-0.4.1-3.fc11 (2009-8101)

High Nessus Plugin ID 40425


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


If a user was added to the SSSD BE database without setting a password, the user could ssh to the SSSD configured client and enter any password to gain access. This update resolves this issue so users with no password set are no longer able to login.

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.


Update the affected sssd package.
