Description Jan Lieskovsky 2011-01-24 09:24:48 UTC
A session fixation flaw was found in the way Red Hat
Network (RHN) Satellite and Spacewalk services handled
session cookies. An RHN Satellite or Spacewalk Server
user able to pre-set the session cookie in a victim's
browser to a valid value could use this flaw to hijack
the victim's session after the next log in.
