From remote

Impact:

Manipulation of data, Exposure of sensitive information, DoS

Solution Status:

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Red Hat has issued an update for Red Hat CloudForms. This fixes multiple security issues and vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to manipulate certain data and disclose certain sensitive information, by malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions, and by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

For more information:
SA51815

1) The "aeolus-configserver-setup" script creates certain files within the "/tmp" directory with insecure world-readable permissions. This can be exploited to disclose authentication credentials.

2) The "katello-generate-passphrase" utility creates the "/etc/katello/secure/passphrase" file with insecure world-readable permissions. This can be exploited to disclose the passphrase for Katello.

3) The "katello-configure" utility generates a RPM file containing the pem file with embedded CA certificate with insecure world-readable and world-writable permissions. This can be exploited to install or remove software on Katello client systems via Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attacks.

4) The Aeolus Configuration Server creates the "/var/log/aeolus-configserver/configserver.log" file with insecure world-readable permissions. This can be exploited to e.g. disclose administrative credentials for other services.

5) An error due to Conductor not properly restricting modifications of quota for number of instances can be exploited to manipulate the quota and e.g. monopolise resources.


Solution:
Updated packages are available via Red Hat Network.
