Additional Product Information
No CVE has been assigned at this time.
Reporter does not default secure when installed with the default configuration
By default, administrative connections go over a clear text channel (HTTP)
allowing an attacker with access to the network to view, replay, and modify all
login and session data.
Disconnected login is also enabled by default in 9.x releases.Disconnected
login stores the password used by the Administrator locally with minimal
obfuscation. An attacker who is able to de-obfuscate the password will thereby
be able to log in to Reporter as the Administrator and will be able to log in
to the configured LDAP directory.
Reporter 9.3 and later defaults to HTTPS for administrative connections and
redirects HTTP connections to HTTPS. Reporter also disables disconnected login
Configure Reporter to support HTTPS for management connections and always
connect to Reporter over HTTPS.Disable disconnected login.
