Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-03-25 09:37:06 EDT
An information disclosure flaw was found in the way Moodle, a course management system, honoured 'forceloginforprofiles' configuration option / settings (course profile information was available regardless of this option being enabled / applied). Remote attacker (logged in as Moodle guest) could use this flaw to obtain sensitive information.

Comment 1 Jan Lieskovsky 2013-03-25 09:50:27 EDT
This issue affects the versions of the moodle package, as shipped with Fedora release of 18, 17, and Fedora EPEL-6. Please schedule an update.

--

This issue (probably [*]) does not affect the version of the moodle package, as shipped with Fedora EPEL-5.

[*] Saying probably, because based on comparing proposed upstream patch with relevant source code it is not possible (without further investigation) to determine, if the particular version is not affected.
