This CVE Bugzilla entry is for community support informational purposes only as it does not affect a package in a commercially supported Red Hat product. Refer to the dependent bugs for status of those individual community products.

Mitigation:

Disable the ID number field by unchecking it in Site admin > Users > User policies > Show user identity, until the patch has been applied.
