Red Hat Satellite is a system management tool for Linux-based
infrastructures. It allows for provisioning, monitoring, and remote
management of multiple Linux deployments with a single, centralized tool.
It was found that the RPC interface in Satellite would resolve external
entities, allowing an attacker to conduct XML External Entity (XXE)
attacks. A remote attacker could use this flaw to read files accessible to
the user running the Satellite server, and potentially perform other more
advanced XXE attacks. (CVE-2014-8162)
