Synopsis:          Moderate: Red Hat OpenStack Platform director security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2018:1627-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform
Advisory URL:      https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2018:1627
Issue date:        2018-05-18
CVE Names:         CVE-2017-12155 CVE-2018-1000115 

1. Summary:

An update is now available for Red Hat OpenStack Platform 11.0 (Ocata).

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat OpenStack Platform 11.0 - noarch

3. Description:

Red Hat OpenStack Platform director provides the facilities for deploying
and monitoring a private or public infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud
based on Red Hat OpenStack Platform.

Security Fix(es):

* A resource-permission flaw was found in the python-tripleo and
openstack-tripleo-heat-templates packages where
ceph.client.openstack.keyring is created as world-readable. A local
attacker with access to the key could read or modify data on Ceph cluster
pools for OpenStack as though the attacker were the OpenStack service, thus
potentially reading or modifying data in an OpenStack Block Storage volume.

To exploit this flaw, the attacker must have local access to an overcloud
node. However by default, access to overcloud nodes is restricted and
accessible only from the management undercloud server on an internal
network. (CVE-2017-12155)

This issue was discovered by Katuya Kawakami (NEC).

* It was discovered that the memcached connections using UDP transport
protocol can be abused for efficient traffic amplification distributed
denial of service (DDoS) attacks. A remote attacker could send a malicious
UDP request using a spoofed source IP address of a target system to
memcached, causing it to send a significantly larger response to the
target. (CVE-2018-1000115)

This update also includes the following bug fixes and enhancements:

* Prior to this update, when removing the ceph-osd RPM from overcloud nodes
that do not require the package, the corresponding Ceph OSD product key was
not removed. Consequently, the subscription-manager would incorrectly
report that the Ceph OSD product was still installed.
With this update, the script that handles removal of the ceph-osd RPM now
also removes the Ceph OSD product key. Note: The script that removes the
RPM and product key executes only during the overcloud update procedure;
the product key is removed only when the overcloud node is updated.
As a result, after removing the ceph-osd RPM, the subscription-manager no
longer reports the Ceph OSD product is installed. (BZ#1571436)

* Previously, there were errors in the director Heat template that
configures the VMAX Cinder backend driver. Consequently, the VMAX driver
would not function correctly. With this update, the errors have been
corrected, and the VMAX driver functions correctly. (BZ#1546799)

* This enhancement adds director support for deploying the Dell EMC VMAX
cinder backend. (BZ#1546793)

* In this enhancement, if a minor update is blocked by an existing yum
process that prevents the package update, the process should exit with an
appropriate error message. This was added because the minor update may
appear to freeze, due to yum waiting for the existing yum.pid to exit; when
it eventually fails it is not immediately clear why. As a result, if there
is an existing yum process preventing the package update, then the minor
update fails with a clear message to indicate this: "ERROR existing yum.pid
detected - can't continue! Please ensure there is no other package update
process for the duration of the minor update worfklow. Exiting".
