It was found that Foreman did not correctly sanitize values of the "fqdn"
and "hostgroup" parameters, allowing an attacker to provide a specially
crafted value for these parameters and perform an SQL injection attack.
This issue was discovered by Dominic Cleal of Red Hat.
Users of Foreman are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct this issue. In Red Hat OpenStack, Foreman runs on the Apache HTTP
Server using mod_passenger. As such, after installing the updated packages,
the httpd service must be restarted ("service httpd restart") for this
update to take effect.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
