#4105 1.16: Information leak in infopipe due to an improper uid restriction
Closed: wontfix a year ago by pbrezina. Opened 2 years ago by pbrezina.

Currently only a small subset of infopipe methods performs access check. This affects only older branches then 2.x.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Call an infopipe method as a user not-listed in [ifp] allowed_uids
2. Without fix the access is granted


$ dbus-send --print-reply --system --dest=org.freedesktop.sssd.infopipe /org/freedesktop/sssd/infopipe/Users org.freedesktop.sssd.infopipe.Users.FindByName string:user-1

This is fixed since 2.0. The security impact is low (by default only posix attributes are available) and we could break users applications that relies on the fact that the data is available to everyone therefore we should not fix it in 1.16 where such change is unacceptable.
