Then you installed a version of the IdP with a known security issue,

Also some of the installation choices made in that blog post are
rather erractic, IMHO (installing the JVM and tomcat to
/usr/local/src, creating a symlink for the IdP's log files and later
overwrite it by installing the SP which owns that same directory,
incorrect filesystem paths, etc.) and some statements flat out wrong,
but that's for the author to correct and keep up to date, of course.

So generally it's advisable to use the official documentation
maintained by the project & community, and ask questions regarding
anything that's unclear, so that the documentation can be improved.
