AAA-JDBC is an extension which allows to store authentication and
authorization data in relational database and provides these data using
standardized oVirt AAA API similarly to already existing AAA-LDAP
* When updating a password in the rhvm database the ovirt-aaa-jdbc-tool
tools fail to correctly check for the current password if it is expired.
This would allow access to an attacker with access to change the password
on accounts with expired passwords, gaining access to those accounts.
