The conga packages provide a web-based administration tool for remote
cluster and storage management.
A privilege escalation flaw was found in luci, the Conga web-based
administration application. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw
to obtain administrative access, allowing them to read, create, or modify
the content of the luci application. (CVE-2011-0720)

contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing the
updated packages, luci must be restarted (“service luci restart”) for the
update to take effect.
