                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Moderate: golang security, bug fix, and enhancement update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2016:1538-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2016-1538.html

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for golang is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

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 Enterprise Linux Server Optional (v. 7) - noarch, x86_64

3. Description:

The golang packages provide the Go programming language compiler.

The following packages have been upgraded to a newer upstream version:
golang (1.6.3). (BZ#1346331)

Security Fix(es):

* An input-validation flaw was discovered in the Go programming language
built in CGI implementation, which set the environment variable
"HTTP_PROXY" using the incoming "Proxy" HTTP-request header. The
environment variable "HTTP_PROXY" is used by numerous web clients,
including Go's net/http package, to specify a proxy server to use for HTTP
and, in some cases, HTTPS requests. This meant that when a CGI-based web
application ran, an attacker could specify a proxy server which the
application then used for subsequent outgoing requests, allowing a
man-in-the-middle attack. (CVE-2016-5386)

Red Hat would like to thank Scott Geary (VendHQ) for reporting this issue.
