-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 ===================================================================== Red Hat Security Advisory Synopsis: Moderate: openstack-heat security, bug fix, and enhancement update Advisory ID: RHSA-2014:0090-01 Product: Red Hat OpenStack Advisory URL: Issue date: 2014-01-22 CVE Names: CVE-2013-6426 CVE-2013-6428 ===================================================================== 1. Summary: Updated openstack-heat packages that fix two security issues, several bugs, and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4.0. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: OpenStack 4 - noarch 3. Description: The openstack-heat packages provide heat, a Python implementation of the OpenStack Orchestration engine, to launch multiple composite cloud applications based on templates. It was found that heat did not properly enforce cloudformation-compatible API policy rules. An in-instance attacker could use the CreateStack or UpdateStack methods to create or update a stack, resulting in a violation of the API policy. Note that only setups using Orchestration's cloudformation-compatible API were affected. (CVE-2013-6426) A flaw was found in the way Orchestration's REST API implementation handled modified request paths. An authenticated remote user could use this flaw to bypass the tenant-scoping restriction by modifying the request path, resulting in privilege escalation. Note that only setups using Orchestration's cloudformation-compatible API were affected. (CVE-2013-6428) Red Hat would like to thank Jeremy Stanley of the OpenStack Project for reporting these issues. Upstream acknowledges Steven Hardy of Red Hat as the original reporter. The openstack-heat packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2013.2.1, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. The most notable fixes and enhancements are: * Auto-scaling has been fixed when AdjustmentType was set to PercentChangeInCapacity. * A QPID broker restart no longer permanently disrupts subscribed clients. * RPC requests are now only serviced by one server in a given topic group. * Auto-scaling group growth or shrinkage has been fixed to utilize the full available size, regardless of the scaling policy adjustment. (BZ#1045430) This update also fixes the following bugs: * The outdated heat-db-setup tool, which only supported local installs, has been removed. The Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4 Installation and Configuration Guide has been updated to show how to create the necessary database and associated tables for Orchestration, allowing the deployment of the database server on a local or remote system (see Installing the OpenStack Orchestration Service). (BZ#1046326) * The heat-engine source code had a hard-coded reference to a Fedora image name in the implementation of the AWS-compatible LoadBalancer resource. This meant that you could not specify an alternative LoadBalancer image name in deployments (for example, Red Hat Enterprise Linux). A new option has been added to the Orchestration configuration file, /etc/heat/heat.conf, which is named loadbalancer_template. The new loadbalancer_template option can now be used to specify an alternate LoadBalancer template that contains a different image name. (BZ#1048215) * Due to a packaging error, the heat-manage tool was not working properly (which prohibited a successful database creation). This error has been fixed by moving the parallel package selection code so that all Orchestration tools now use the proper packages for use at runtime. (BZ#1048335) All openstack-heat 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. This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at Documentation for releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform is available at 5.
