Description Murray McAllister 2014-03-11 23:38:40 EDT
It was found that empty passwords could bypass authentication. From the original advisory:

"The ActiveDirectoryLdapAuthenticator does not check the password length. If the directory allows anonymous binds then it may incorrectly authenticate a user who supplies an empty password."

This issue affects versions 3.2.0 to 3.2.1, and versions 3.1.0 to 3.1.5.

Not Vulnerable. This issue does not affect Spring as shipped with various Red Hat products.
