Description Tomas Hoger 2008-03-13 11:22:33 EDT
Richard Megginson discovered that Admin Server as used by Red Hat Directory
Server 8 and Fedora Directory Server does not properly restrict access to CGI
scripts.  This could allow unauthenticated user to get access to information or
perform tasks that should be restricted to authenticated administrative users.

Resolves: bugs 437301 and 437320
Description: Directory Server: shell command injection in CGI replication
monitor
Directory Server: unrestricted access to CGI scripts
Fix Description: remove ScriptAlias for bin/admin/admin/bin - do not use that
directory for CGI URIs - use only protected URIs for CGIs requiring
authentication
Remove most CGI parameters from repl-monitor-cgi.pl - user must supply
replmon.conf in the admin server config directory instead of passing in this
pathname - repl-monitor-cgi.pl does not use system to call repl-monitor.pl, it
"includes" that script (using perl import).
Platforms tested: all supported platforms
Flag Day: no
Doc impact: release notes are available
