Description

The conga packages provide a web-based administration tool for remote cluster and storage management.

A privilege escalation flaw was found in luci, the Conga web-based administration application. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to obtain administrative access, allowing them to read, create, or modify the content of the luci application. (CVE-2011-0720)

Users of Conga are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing the updated packages, luci must be restarted ('service luci restart') for the update to take effect.
