Scientific Linux Security Update : conga on SL5.x i386/x86_64

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 61258


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.

Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in luci, the conga web-based administration application. If a remote attacker could trick a user, who was logged into the luci interface, into visiting a specially crafted URL, it would lead to arbitrary web script execution in the context of the user's luci session. (CVE-2010-1104, CVE-2011-1948)

These updated conga packages include several bug fixes and an enhancement.

Users of conga are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues and add this enhancement. After installing the updated packages, luci must be restarted ('service luci restart') for the update to take effect.


Update the affected conga-debuginfo, luci and / or ricci packages.
