Description Kurt Seifried 2014-02-13 21:42:46 UTC
Pierre Carrier of airbnb reports:

The net-ldap gem generates SSHA passwords with a salt value between
"0" and "999", providing slightly less than 10 bits of entropy.

Acknowledgement:

Red Hat would like to thank Pierre Carrier of airbnb for reporting this issue.

Comment 2 Kurt Seifried 2014-02-13 21:45:50 UTC
Statement:

Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of rubygem-net-ldap as shipped with Red Hat Subscription Asset Manager, CloudForms Management Engine and Red Hat OpenStack 3 and 4 as they did not include support for the password salting feature.
