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.
