Advisory ID: RHSA-2014:0559-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-0559.html
Issue date: 2014-05-27
CVE Names: CVE-2014-0202
An updated rhevm-dwh package that fixes one security issue and two bugs is
The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Low
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.
2. Relevant releases/architectures:
RHEV-M 3.3 - noarch
The Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager data warehouse package
provides the Extract-Transform-Load (ETL) process and database scripts to
create a historic database API. It also provides SQL BI reports creation
for management and monitoring.
It was found that the ovirt-engine-dwh setup script logged the history
database password in plain text to a world-readable file. An attacker with
a local user account on the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager
server could use this flaw to access, read, and modify the reports
Note: Applying the update provided by this advisory does not modify any
existing log files. It is recommended that you search your existing log
files and remove any occurrences of plain text passwords manually.
This issue was discovered by Red Hat.
This update also fixes the following bugs:
* Previously, the read-only user and custom users for the data warehouse
database would lose access to views in the database when the database was
upgraded. This was caused by the views being regenerated when the database
was upgraded and the permissions for those views not being applied to the
newly generated views. Now, user permissions are retained when the database
is upgraded. (BZ#1078129)
* Previously, the ovirt-engine-dwh-setup command would fail under certain
conditions if the pg_hba.conf file had been manually edited prior to
running that command. This was caused by the setup process checking the
exact number of spaces in between values on the line corresponding to
'local'. Now, the logic for checking the values in that line has been
revised so that the setup process can correctly read all values regardless
of the number of spaces. (BZ#1084760)
All rhevm-dwh users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
corrects these issues.
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
5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
1078129 - On DB upgrade, readonly user and client custom users losses permissions to db views
1084760 - rhevm-dwh-setup fails if pg_hba.conf is manually modified
