Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 982560
install.pl --managed-db accepts invalid inputs
Last modified: 2015-01-13 04:54:53 EST
Description of problem:
No validation is performed on bind adress and accept range. Values
are just written into postgre config, resulting in failure during
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: always/deterministic
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install.pl --managed-db
2. when asked about network related stuff, just go ahead and type some nonsense there
3. continue in process as usual
Obviously wrong data is accepted and passed to config,
starting postgre fails.
Data are re-requested in case they are obviously wrong.
Sanity checking should take into account both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
Also bind-address might be checked against available interfaces...
