Advisory ID:       RHSA-2013:1196-01
Product:           Red Hat OpenStack
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2013-1196.html

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated Foreman packages that fix two security issues are now available for
Red Hat OpenStack 3.0.

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.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

OpenStack 3 - noarch

3. Description:

The Foreman packages provide facilities for rapidly deploying Red Hat
OpenStack 3.0. These packages are provided as a Technology Preview. For
more information on the scope and nature of support for items marked as
Technology Preview, refer to
https://access.redhat.com/support/offerings/techpreview/

A flaw was found in the API where insufficient privilege checks were
conducted by the hosts controller, allowing any user with API access to
control any host. (CVE-2013-4182)

A denial of service flaw was found in Foreman in the way user input was
converted to a symbol. An authenticated user could create inputs that would
lead to excessive memory consumption. (CVE-2013-4180)

Red Hat would like to thank Daniel Lobato of CERN IT-PES-PS for reporting
CVE-2013-4182. The CVE-2013-4180 issue was discovered by Marek Hulán of the
Red Hat Foreman team.

Users of Foreman are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct these issues. 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.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/11258

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
