Description

libuser before 0.57 uses a cleartext password value of (1) !! or (2) x for new LDAP user accounts, which makes it easier for remote attackers to obtain access by specifying one of these values.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-libuser
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-libuser-devel
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-libuser-python

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
