This has been resolved in the version of L&B available in the EGI UMD 2, EMI 2, EGI UMD 1 and EMI 1. Details ======= A vulnerability has been found in gLite Logging and Bookkeeping client, where although the validity of the X509 certificate is checked properly, the identity of the servers is not properly checked. This vulnerability exists but is difficult to exploit, difficult to gain anything from an exploit, and probably not exploitable without being traceable. Risk Category ============= This issue has been assessed as 'Low' risk by the EGI SVG Risk Assessment Team. Affected Software ================= Logging and Bookkeeping version 3.0.12 and earlier. This is resolved in Logging and Bookkeeping version 3.2.9 Sites wishing to ensure they have a fixed version should look for glite-lbjp-common-gss-3.1.3 or later. This is included in UMD version UMD 2.1.0 This is included in UMD version UMD 1.10.0 Component Installation information ================================== The official repository for the distribution of grid middleware for EGI sites is repository.egi.eu which contains the EGI Unified Middleware Distribution (UMD). Sites using the EGI UMD should see: http://repository.egi.eu/category/umd_releases/distribution/umd-2/ http://repository.egi.eu/category/umd_releases/distribution/umd_1/ For sites installing directly from EMI Sites installing directly from EMI should see: http://www.eu-emi.eu/emi-2-matterhorn/updates/ http://www.eu-emi.eu/emi-1-kebnekaise-updates/ Recommendations =============== Sites are recommended to update their systems in due course, if they are not already running a version of the Logging and Bookkeeping which has this issue resolved.
