Synopsis:          Low: sssd security, bug fix, and enhancement update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2011:0560-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011:0560.html
Issue date:        2011-05-19
CVE Names:         CVE-2010-4341 
====================================================================
1. Summary:

Updated sssd packages that fix one security issue, several bugs, and add
various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

3. Description:

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 crash SSSD 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.

This update also fixes several bugs and adds various enhancements.
Documentation for these bug fixes and enhancements will be available
shortly from the Technical Notes document, linked to in the References
section.

Users of SSSD should upgrade to these updated 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.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
