RHSA-2012:1543 - Security Advisory
Security Advisory: Important
Red Hat Insights patch analysis
Identify and remediate systems affected by this advisory.
Updated CloudForms System Engine packages that fix multiple security
issues, several bugs, and add enhancements are now available.
The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each
vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.
Red Hat CloudForms is an on-premise hybrid cloud
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) product that lets you create and manage
private and public clouds.
This update fixes bugs in and adds enhancements to the System Engine
packages, and upgrades the system to CloudForms 1.1.
This update also fixes the following security issues:
It was discovered that Katello did not properly check user permissions when
handling certain requests. An authenticated remote attacker could use this
flaw to download consumer certificates or change settings of other users'
systems if they knew the target system's UUID. (CVE-2012-5603)
It was discovered that Pulp logged administrative passwords to a world
readable log file. A local attacker could use this flaw to control systems
deployed and managed by CloudForms. (CVE-2012-3538)
It was discovered that the Pulp configuration file pulp.conf was installed
as world readable. A local attacker could use this flaw to view the
administrative password, allowing them to control systems deployed and
managed by CloudForms. (CVE-2012-4574)
It was discovered that grinder used insecure permissions for its cache
directory. A local attacker could use this flaw to access or modify files
in the cache. (CVE-2012-5605)
The CVE-2012-5603 issue was discovered by Lukas Zapletal of Red Hat;
CVE-2012-3538 was discovered by James Laska of Red Hat; CVE-2012-4574 was
discovered by Kurt Seifried of Red Hat; and CVE-2012-5605 was discovered by
James Labocki of Red Hat.
