CentOS Update for sssd CESA-2011:0975 centos5 i386

Published: 2011-09-23 14:39:49
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'sssd' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
sssd on CentOS 5

Technical Details:
The System Security Services Daemon (SSSD) provides a set of daemons to manage access to remote directories and authentication mechanisms. It provides an NSS and PAM interface toward the system and a pluggable back-end system to connect to multiple different account sources. It is also the basis to provide client auditing and policy services for projects such as FreeIPA. A flaw was found in the SSSD PAM responder that could allow a local attacker to force SSSD to enter an infinite loop via a carefully-crafted packet. With SSSD unresponsive, legitimate users could be denied the ability to log in to the system. (CVE-2010-4341) Red Hat would like to thank Sebastian Krahmer for reporting this issue. These updated sssd Linux Distribution Packages include a number of bug fixes and enhancements. Space precludes documenting all of these changes in this advisory. Refer to the linked Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.7 Technical Notes for information about these changes. All sssd users are advised to upgrade to these updated sssd Linux Distribution Packages, which upgrade SSSD to upstream version 1.5.1 to correct this issue, and fix the bugs and add the enhancements noted in the Technical Notes.

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
