Description Kurt Seifried 2014-06-06 19:16:52 UTC
Mark Chappell of Red Hat reports:

When configured to automatically discover and store certificates the 
aes_security plugin relies on the file name of the SSL certificate as stored 
on the client rather than any of the information in the SSL certificate when 
creating the file to store the certificate in. Due to a lack of checks in
aes_security.rb this allows arbitrary files to be created.

It's wontfix for Red Hat, Fedora/EPEL may choose to rebase so we leave the trackers open for them.
