Description Alexander Bergmann 2014-02-14 09:55:52 UTC
The salting inside password.rb is insufficient as the random salt can only be between 0 and 999. 

> salt = (rand * 1000).to_i.to_s

SLE and openSUSE are not affected as the salting feature is not included.


CVE-2014-0083 was assigned to this issue.
