Description

Updated conga packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Cluster Suite 4. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

The conga packages provide a web-based administration tool for remote cluster and storage management. A privilege escalation flaw was found in luci, the Conga web-based administration application. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to obtain administrative access, allowing them to read, create, or modify the content of the luci application. (CVE-2011-0720) Users of Conga are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue. After installing the updated packages, luci must be restarted ("service luci restart") for the update to take effect.
