Summary: Updated Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform Installer packages that fix one security issue and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 5.0 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important 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: OpenStack Foreman - noarch, x86_64 3. Description: Red Hat Enterprise OpenStack Platform Installer is a deployment management tool. It provides a web user interface for managing the installation and configuration of remote systems. Deployment of changes is performed using Puppet. Additionally, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), Domain Name System (DNS), Preboot Execution Environment (PXE), and Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) services can be provided. Controlling these services also enables provisioning of physical systems that do not yet have an operating system installed. It was discovered that the puppet manifests, as provided with the openstack-puppet-modules package, would configure the pcsd daemon with a known default password. If this password was not changed and an attacker was able to gain access to pcsd, they could potentially run shell commands as root. (CVE-2015-1842) Note: This flaw only affects Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform installations deployed using the HA feature set. For additional information on addressing this flaw see: https://access.redhat.com/articles/1396123 This issue was discovered by Alessandro Vozza of Red Hat. The augeas package has been upgraded to version 1.0.0-7, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version. (BZ#1198236) This update also fixes the following bug: * A problem with cloned constraints for neutron caused RHEL OpenStack Platform deployments to fail. This update corrects the cloned constraints, and deployments are now successful. (BZ#1209628) All Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform Installer users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied. For details on how to apply this update, refer to: https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258 5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/): 1198236 - Update augeas to match 6.6 z-stream 1201875 - CVE-2015-1842 openstack-puppet-modules: pacemaker configured with default password 1209628 - rubygem-staypuft: A4 RHOS5 deployment failed with: /usr/sbin/pcs constraint order start neutron-ovs-cleanup then start neutron-netns-cleanup returned 1 instead of one of  6.
