Summary: Updated openhpi packages that fix one security issue, several bugs, and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat Product Security 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: Red Hat Enterprise Linux ComputeNode (v. 7) - x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ComputeNode Optional (v. 7) - x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 7) - aarch64, ppc64, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional (v. 7) - aarch64, ppc64, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 7) - x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation Optional (v. 7) - x86_64 3. Description: OpenHPI is an open source project created with the intent of providing an implementation of the SA Forum's Hardware Platform Interface (HPI). HPI provides an abstracted interface to managing computer hardware, typically for chassis and rack based servers. HPI includes resource modeling, access to and control over sensor, control, watchdog, and inventory data associated with resources, abstracted System Event Log interfaces, hardware events and alerts, and a managed hotswap interface. It was found that the "/var/lib/openhpi" directory provided by OpenHPI used world-writeable and world-readable permissions. A local user could use this flaw to view, modify, and delete OpenHPI-related data, or even fill up the storage device hosting the /var/lib directory. (CVE-2015-3248) This issue was discovered by Marko Myllynen of Red Hat. The openhpi packages have been upgraded to upstream version 3.4.0, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#1127908) This update also fixes the following bug: * Network timeouts were handled incorrectly in the openhpid daemon. As a consequence, network connections could fail when external plug-ins were used. With this update, handling of network socket timeouts has been improved in openhpid, and the described problem no longer occurs. (BZ#1208127) All openhpi users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues and add these enhancements. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied.
