Scientific Linux Security Update : conga on SL4.x i386/x86_64

High Nessus Plugin ID 60996


The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


The conga packages provide a web-based administration tool for remote cluster and storage management.

A privilege escalation flaw was found in luci, the Conga web-based administration application. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to obtain administrative access, allowing them to read, create, or modify the content of the luci application. (CVE-2011-0720)

Users of Conga are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing the updated packages, luci must be restarted ('service luci restart') for the update to take effect.

SL 4x


Update the affected luci and / or ricci packages.
