It was discovered that various components in the luci site extension-related URLs were not properly restricted to administrative users. A remote, authenticated attacker could escalate their privileges to perform certain actions that should be restricted to administrative users, such as adding users and systems, and viewing log data.

Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2014:1194 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: conga security and bug fix update 2014-09-16 09:28:53 UTC

Description Vincent Danen 2014-06-24 17:54:59 UTC
Various components in the /luci/homebase and /luci/cluster menu, which should be restricted to administrative users only, are exposed to any logged-in (non-administrative, but authenticated) user if visited with a specially constructed URL.  This could allow an authenticated, non-administrative, user to, among others: add new users, add systems, remove clusters from conga, and view logs.

This particular issue affects luci, as included in conga, and does not affect luci otherwise.
