1. Summary:

CloudForms Cloud Engine 1.1.2 is now available.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

CloudForms Cloud Engine for RHEL 6 Server - noarch

3. Description:

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. It provides self-service computing resources to
users in a managed, governed, and secure way. CloudForms Cloud Engine is a
management application for cloud resources.

It was found that the Aeolus Configuration Server stored passwords in plain
text in the world-readable "/var/log/aeolus-configserver/configserver.log"
file. A local attacker could use this flaw to obtain the administrative
passwords for other services (such as Katello, databases, and so on).
(CVE-2012-6117)

It was found that Conductor, the web-based management console, allowed
unprivileged users to modify their quota for the number of instances they
are allowed to run. An unprivileged user could use this flaw to monopolize
resources and run more instances than intended. (CVE-2012-6118)

It was found that the aeolus-configserver-setup script created a
world-readable file containing authentication details in plain text in the
"/tmp/" directory. A local attacker could use this flaw to obtain Audrey
credentials, allowing them to make configuration changes to Audrey-enabled
instances. (CVE-2012-5509)

The CVE-2012-6117 issue was discovered by James Laska of Red Hat;
CVE-2012-6118 was discovered by Tomas Sedovic of Red Hat; and CVE-2012-5509
was discovered by Aaron Weitekamp of the Red Hat Cloud Quality Engineering
team.

This update also fixes the following bug:

* A bug in the initial filter view for instances caused stopped instances
to display for the default "Non stopped applications" option until
auto-refresh. This bug fix corrects the form rendering for the filter view.
The filter view now displays only non-stopped instances. (BZ#895569)

Additionally, this update adds the following enhancements:

* Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.9 support to guest image building in
CloudForms Cloud Engine. (BZ#903646)

* Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.9 Amazon Machine Images (AMI) on
Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) providers for
CloudForms Cloud Engine. (BZ#903651)

* Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 support to guest image building in
CloudForms Cloud Engine. (BZ#903395)

* Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 Amazon Machine Images (AMI) on
Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) providers for
CloudForms Cloud Engine. (BZ#903650)
