Red Hat has issued an update for tog-pegasus. This fixes a security issues and a weakness, which can be exploited by people to conduct brute force attacks and malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions.
1) The security issue is caused due to Red Hat's security enhancements not being applied after re-basing the package to version 2.7.0, which can be exploited to e.g. send requests to the WBEM services.
Successful exploitation requires a valid user account.
2) The weakness is caused due to the application not logging failed authentications to the system log, which can be exploited to e.g. conduct brute force attacks to guess a user's password.
Solution: Updated packages are available via Red Hat Network.
