AIX 6.1 TL 6 : bos.rte.security (U833130)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 54341

Synopsis

The remote AIX host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

The remote host is missing AIX PTF U833130, which is related to the security of the package bos.rte.security.

After installing bos.rte.security 6.1.6.4 fileset, an LDAP user will be able to log in with an incorrect password. This occurs only when authtype is set to ldap_auth in the /etc/security/ldap/ldap.cfg file.
Non-LDAP users can also log in with incorrect passwords if the local users have their SYSTEM attribute in the /etc/security/user file is set to SYSTEM = 'LDAP', or the default stanza is set to SYSTEM = 'LDAP' and local users do not have SYSTEM set in their own stanza. If local users don't have LDAP in their SYSTEM attribute, then they will not be affected.

Solution

Install the appropriate missing security-related fix.
