SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : sssd (SUSE-SU-2016:2579-1)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 94275


The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


This update for sssd fixes one security issue and three bugs. The following vulnerability was fixed :

- CVE-2014-0249: Incorrect expansion of group membership when encountering a non-POSIX group. (bsc#880245) The following non-security fixes were also included :

- Prevent crashes of statically linked binaries using getpwuid when sssd is used and nscd is turned off or has caching disabled. (bsc#993582)

- Add logrotate configuration to prevent log files from growing too large when running with debug mode enabled.

- Order sudo rules by the same logic used by the native LDAP support from sudo. (bsc#1002973)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
