Description Matthew Booth 2010-07-10 23:47:31 UTC
Created attachment 430932 [details]
Bogus mail received from RHN

Description of problem:
RHN continues to send me daily status reports. This is despite:

* Having no systems registered against this account
* Having unselected 'Receive RHN email notifications' in preferences
* Having changed the email address on this account to a fake one

I will attach the most recent offending email to this bug.

Note that I used to have machines registered to the account until their entitlements were removed. From an administration POV, feel free to delete the account in question as I have no further use for it. Unfortunately I don't seem to be able to do this myself.

mdbooth: Message-ID: <2042319808.1279616973577.JavaMail.root@scripts01.errata.prod.int.phx2.redhat.com>
Sebastian: ok, so it's PROD, as expected

 - eric|mtg is now known as eric
Sebastian: mdbooth: there might be something fishy going on
mdbooth: Sebastian: I filed a bug about it
mdbooth: I'm happy for the account to be deleted, btw
Sebastian: mdbooth: my gut feeling is that we have email leaking from ERRATA.STAGE environment
Sebastian: which means misconfiguration
Sebastian: in the meantime, you can try logging into: https://rhn.errata.stage.redhat.com
Sebastian: with your RHN username, password 'redhat'

Sebastian: and uncheck the Email notifications in preferences there
Sebastian: to see whether it'll affect something
mdbooth: Interesting
mdbooth: I have systems on that account
Sebastian: those are snapshots of the production db at some time
Sebastian: we have 5 (!) environments
mdbooth: Unchecked
Sebastian: only PROD should be sending emails
Sebastian: however the emails you're receiving smell like arriving from ERRATA.STAGE env (they have errata.prod in the hostnames)

Comment 2 Matthew Booth 2010-07-20 09:54:12 UTC
I'll report back on whether the email stops.

Comment 3 Matthew Booth 2010-07-21 14:10:49 UTC
Email has stopped. According to Seb this confirms a misconfiguration on errata.stage.

Comment 4 Sebastian Skracic 2010-10-07 08:44:32 UTC
Closing per the comment above.
