Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1283969
Firefox prepopulates "Account username" of LDAP settings with normal user credentials
Last modified: 2017-08-11 08:33:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Running Satellite 6.1.4 (but also reproduced this on 6.1.3) and Firefox 42.0.
Due to lazyness admin/changeme is saved as credentials for the Satellite URL in Firefox. When editing LDAP authentication, Firefox prepopulates the Account username field with "admin" (if the field is empty, as it is when LDAP allows anonymous bind).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. save login credentials in firefox
2. go to Administer → LDAP authentication
3. create a new LDAP or edit an existing one that has an empty account username
account username is set to the stored satellite user by Firefox
account username is empty
Marking the field in LDAP settings as autocomplete="off" might help, but I did not test it.
Moving 6.2 bugs out to sat-backlog.
This is still an issue in 6.2.6 satellite with firefox-51.0-3.fc26.x86_64
There is now an upstream issue for this http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/19519
This bz has been moved to an upstream issue. We will no longer be tracking this in the downstream. When the upstream issue is fixed, the next release of Satellite will include the fix. If this is a concern, please reach out to Bryan Kearney or Rich Jerrido. Thank you.
