Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7513) Non-superuser users should not be able to list users
Date Tue, 08 Jul 2014 20:06:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-7513?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14055414#comment-14055414
] 

Michael Shuler commented on CASSANDRA-7513:
-------------------------------------------

For the sake of the conversation, if I was a successfully logged in c* user, a) I have database
access authentication, b) I need a superuser to do something beyond my own access, c) ListUserStatement
will allow me to see who I might go ask to do something for me, or a superuser that I need
to log in as to perform the needed action.

I already have, as a normal user, authentication to see things in the database. What's the
harm in seeing who the superusers are?

> ListUserStatement allows any logged in user to list all the users in the system. This
is a security flaw as it allows non-superusers to get a list of superusers.
> There is no reason to allow non-superusers to get a list users because all the authentication
functionality that manipulates users is only available to superusers.
