EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : ipa (EulerOS-SA-2016-1042)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99805


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


According to the version of the ipa packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- The cert_revoke command in FreeIPA does not check for the 'revoke certificate' permission, which allows remote authenticated users to revoke arbitrary certificates by leveraging the 'retrieve certificate' permission.(CVE-2016-5404)

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


Update the affected ipa package.
