Advisory ID:       RHSA-2016:2839-01
Product:           Red Hat CloudForms
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2016-2839.html

1. Summary:

An update is now available for Red Hat CloudForms 4.1.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Important. 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:

CloudForms Management Engine 5.6 - x86_64

3. Description:

Red Hat CloudForms Management Engine delivers the insight, control, and
automation needed to address the challenges of managing virtual
environments. CloudForms Management Engine is built on Ruby on Rails, a
model-view-controller (MVC) framework for web application development.
Action Pack implements the controller and the view components.

Security Fix(es):

* A code injection flaw was found in the way capacity and utilization
imported control files are processed. A remote, authenticated attacker with
access to the capacity and utilization feature could use this flaw to
execute arbitrary code as the user CFME runs as. (CVE-2016-5402)

This issue was discovered by Simon Lukasik (Red Hat).

Additional Changes:

This update also fixes various bugs and adds several enhancements. Notable
changes include:

Changes to the Automate component:

* This release of CloudForms allows provisioning of a virtual machine
without specifying a host but validating a cluster. CloudForms now
validates if either a host or cluster is selected when provisioning on
VMware. (BZ#1378116)

Changes to the Providers component:

* In the previous version of CloudForms, when attempting to open a VNC
console to an instance, CloudForms failed to connect because the instance
did not exist for that tenant - it attempted to use the wrong tenant. This
update specifies the tenant when opening a VNC console which has resolved
the issue. CloudForms is now able to connect successfully without an error.

Changes to the Provisioning component:

* In the previous version of CloudForms, cloning a VMware template failed
when the target datacenter was nested below multiple folders. This was
because if the datacenter was nested logically under various folders, users
were unable to find the placement ID during an autoplacement VMware
provision request. This fix always does a lookup of the folder path from
the host datacenter instead of statically setting a possible wrong default
value which has resolved the issue. (BZ#1361174)

Changes to the Replication component:

* In the previous version of CloudForms, subscription validation failed for
replication subscriptions which were successfully saved. This was because
the validation was done directly by the UI which did not have access to
passwords of currently saved subscriptions. The validation would pass when
the user enters the password when initially saving the subscription, but
failed once the subscription needed to be retrieved from the database. This
update has fixed the failing validation on saved replication subscriptions.

Changes to the vulnerability component:

* A code injection flaw was found in the way capacity and utilization
imported control files are processed. A remote, authenticated attacker with
access to the capacity and utilization feature could use this flaw to
execute arbitrary code as the user CFME runs as. (BZ#1357559)

* In the previous version of CloudForms, when trying to save filters in
Subnets/Routers/Security groups/Floating IPs/Network ports exception
appeared. This was caused due to missing routes for network resources. This
update adds missing routes for network resources and the issue has now been
resolved. (BZ#1370573)

* In the previous version of CloudForms, My Filters in datastore was
unclickable and no filters were shown under it. This update enabled My
Filters in datastore and the issue is now resolved. (BZ#1379727)
