This issue can affect all NetScreen IDP stand-alone platforms running IDP OS 5.1.
A username enumeration issue has been found in the Juniper Networks IDP stand alone product. The problem is a result of incorrect configuration of the Apache webserver daemon. This misconfiguration allows the Apache web server to confirm if a given username is valid on the system.

No other Juniper Networks products or platforms are affected by this issue.

This issue has been assigned CVE-2001-1013.

The fix for this issue requires a configuration change. The following steps must be followed in order to fix the issue:

1) Log on as root (if via ssh, use admin, and then su - to root)
2) Use a text editor to edit /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

3) Locate the following lines:
SuexecUserGroup root root
    UserDir public_html

4) Change the config to reflect the following:

SuexecUserGroup root root
   UserDir Disabled

5) Finally, you need to restart the services on the device:

[root@defaulthost ~]# sh /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart
Stopping httpd:[OK]
Starting httpd:[OK]
[root@defaulthost ~]#
