Red Hat OpenShift Enterprise is a cloud computing Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution designed for on-premise or private cloud deployments. Refer to the Red Hat OpenShift Enterprise 1.1 Release Notes for information about the changes in this release. The Release Notes will be available shortly from https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/ This update also fixes the following security issues: It was found that the master cryptographic key of Jenkins could be retrieved via the HTTP server that is hosting Jenkins. A remote attacker could use this flaw to access the server and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Jenkins. Note that this issue only affected Jenkins instances that had slaves attached and that also allowed anonymous read access (not the default configuration). Manual action is also required to correct this issue. Refer to "Jenkins Security Advisory 2013-01-04", linked to in the References, for further information. (CVE-2013-0158) When the rhc-chk script was run in debug mode, its output included sensitive information, such as database passwords, in plain text. As this script is commonly used when troubleshooting, this flaw could lead to users unintentionally exposing sensitive information in support channels (for example, a Bugzilla report). This update removes the rhc-chk script. (CVE-2012-5658) Multiple flaws in the Jenkins web interface could allow a remote attacker to perform HTTP response splitting and cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks, as well as redirecting a victim to an arbitrary page by utilizing an open redirect flaw. (CVE-2012-6072, CVE-2012-6074, CVE-2012-6073) A flaw was found in the way rubygem-activerecord dynamic finders extracted options from method parameters. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to perform SQL injection attacks against applications using the Active Record dynamic finder methods. (CVE-2012-6496) The openshift-port-proxy-cfg program created a temporary file in an insecure way. A local attacker could use this flaw to perform a symbolic link attack, overwriting an arbitrary file accessible to the root user with a "0" or a "1", which could lead to a denial of service. By default, OpenShift uses polyinstantiation (per user) for the /tmp/ directory, minimizing the risk of exploitation by local attackers. (CVE-2013-0164) The CVE-2013-0164 issue was discovered by Michael Scherer of the Red Hat Regional IT team. Users of Red Hat OpenShift Enterprise 1.0 are advised to upgrade to Red Hat OpenShift Enterprise 1.1.
