Description Paramvir jindal 2021-03-01 10:28:07 UTC
Re-authentication is missing while updating the password. This may cause account takeover if any attacker get the temporary physical access to a user's browser.

No Red Hat product other than RHSSO has this account console feature so marking all of them as not affected.
