Updated cfme packages that fix multiple security issues, several bugs, and
add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat CloudForms 3.0.
The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
Important 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:
Management Engine - noarch, x86_64
Red Hat CloudForms Management Engine delivers the insight, control, and
automation needed to address the challenges of managing virtual
A flaw was found in the way Ruby on Rails' actionpack rubygem performed
JSON parameter parsing. An application using a third party library, which
uses the Rack::Request interface, or custom Rack middleware could bypass
the protection implemented to fix the CVE-2013-0155 vulnerability, causing
the application to receive unsafe parameters and become vulnerable to
An input sanitization flaw was found in the saved_report_delete action in
the ReportController. An authenticated Management Engine user could use
this flaw to perform an SQL injection attack on the Management Engine back
end database. (CVE-2014-0137)
It was found that Red Hat CloudForms Management Engine did not properly
check user role permissions for actions associated with catalogs.
An authenticated Management Engine user could use this flaw to delete
arbitrary catalogs regardless of the granted permissions. (CVE-2014-0078)
Multiple stack-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the date/time
implementation of PostgreSQL. An authenticated database user could provide
a specially crafted date/time value that, when processed, could cause
PostgreSQL to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the
permissions of the user running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2014-0063)
Multiple integer overflow flaws, leading to heap-based buffer overflows,
were found in various type input functions in PostgreSQL. An authenticated
database user could possibly use these flaws to crash PostgreSQL or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user
running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2014-0064, CVE-2014-2669)
Multiple potential buffer overflow flaws were found in PostgreSQL.
An authenticated database user could possibly use these flaws to crash
PostgreSQL or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of
the user running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2014-0065)
It was found that granting an SQL role to a database user in a PostgreSQL
database without specifying the "ADMIN" option allowed the grantee to
remove other users from their granted role. An authenticated database user
could use this flaw to remove a user from an SQL role which they were
granted access to. (CVE-2014-0060)
A flaw was found in the validator functions provided by PostgreSQL's
procedural languages. An authenticated database user could possibly use
this flaw to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2014-0061)
A race condition was found in the way PostgreSQL's CREATE INDEX command
performed multiple independent lookups of a table that had to be indexed.
An authenticated database user could possibly use this flaw to escalate
their privileges. (CVE-2014-0062)
It was found that the chkpass extension of PostgreSQL did not check the
return value of the crypt() function. An authenticated database user could
possibly use this flaw to crash PostgreSQL via a null pointer dereference.
