Description Jan Lieskovsky 2008-11-18 04:10:57 EST
A security flaw was found in the OpenPegasus WBEM service, shipped as
tog-pegasus package within the Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It was discovered,
the OpenPegasus service did not log failed authentication attempts to
the system log file via the traditional Pluggable Authentication Modules
mechanism. An attacker could use this flaw to discover the password
of the root account used for the authentication against the CIM server.
