Description Vincent Danen 2013-03-22 17:00:55 UTC
It was reported that Certificate System suffers from a format string injection flaw when viewing certificates.  This could allow a remote attacker to crash the Certificate System server or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user runnin the service (typically run as an unprivileged user, such as pkiuser).

This was reported against Certificate System 8.1 and may also affect Dogtag 9 and 10.
