Red Hat Network Satellite Server version 5.0.1 is now available which fixes
a security issue in version 5.0.0.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.
During an internal code audit, a flaw was found in an unused back-end
XMLRPC handler first added to Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.0.0. A
remote attacker with valid authentication credentials who was able to
connect to a Satellite Server could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code
on the server as the 'apache' user. (CVE-2007-4132)
Users of Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.0.0 are advised to upgrade to
5.0.1 which removes the unused, vulnerable handler.
Note: This issue did not affect the hosted version of Red Hat Network or
versions of Red Hat Network Satellite Server prior to 5.0.0.
