Description Stuart D Gathman 2018-10-08 23:39:20 UTC
Description of problem:
A default openas2 install configures a command shell listening on 14321 with a factory password.  On Fedora Workstation, the default firewalld config does not block it by default either.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install openas2
2. systemctl start openas2

Actual results:
command shell (openas2 commands, not a general shell) enabled on 14321

Expected results:
admin action should be required to enable the command shell after setting a secure password.

Comment 1 Stuart D Gathman 2018-10-09 02:40:07 UTC
The simplest solution is to comment out the command shell in the default config as recommended by upstream docs.

Comment 2 Ben Cotton 2019-05-02 20:43:07 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 28 is nearing its end of life.
On 2019-May-28 Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 28. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '28'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 28 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 3 Stuart D Gathman 2019-10-23 22:26:18 UTC
Upstream version 2.10.0 disables socket command processor by default.  User will have to explicitly enable it, and then caveat emptor.
