CVE-2019-12405: Apache Traffic Control LDAP-based authentication vulnerability

Severity: Critical

Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation

Versions affected:
Traffic Control 3.0.0
Traffic Control 3.0.1

The Traffic Ops API component of the Apache Traffic Control project is
vulnerable to improper authentication when LDAP is enabled. Given a username
for a user that can be authenticated via LDAP, it is possible to improperly
authenticate as that user without that user's correct password.

3.x users should upgrade to 3.0.2.
If the upgrade cannot be done immediately, LDAP authentication can be disabled
by removing the Traffic Ops LDAP configuration file -- ldap.conf -- in order to
mitigate the vulnerability until an upgrade to 3.0.2 can be performed.
