CVE-2019-3811

Priority
Description
A vulnerability was found in sssd. If a user was configured with no home
directory set, sssd would return '/' (the root directory) instead of ''
(the empty string / no home directory). This could impact services that
restrict the user's filesystem access to within their home directory
through chroot() etc. All versions before 2.1 are vulnerable.
