VMware vFabric tc Server Password Obfuscation Bypass

VMware vFabric tc Server Password Obfuscation Bypass
Posted Aug 12, 2011
Authored by SpringSource Security Team

VMware vFabric tc Server allows users to store the passwords used for JMX authentication in an obfuscated form for organizations where storing passwords in plain text is not permitted. The JMX authentication implementation was incorrectly allowing users to authenticate using the password in either its plain text form or its obfuscated form, bypassing the benefit of obfuscation. Versions 2.0.0.RELEASE to 2.0.5.SR01 and 2.1.0.RELEASE to 2.1.1.SR01 are affected.
