CA Technologies Support is alerting customers to potential risks with CA Single Sign-On (CA SSO), formerly known as CA SiteMinder. Michael Brooks of BishopFox alerted CA to vulnerabilities that can allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service or possibly gain sensitive information. CA has fixes that address the vulnerabilities.
