Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-0101-01 - Red Hat Network Satellite is a systems management tool for Linux-based infrastructures. It allows for provisioning, monitoring, and remote management of multiple Linux deployments with a single, centralized tool. If a user submitted a system registration XML-RPC call to an RHN Satellite server and that call failed, their RHN user password was included in plain text in the error messages both stored in the server log and mailed to the server administrator. With this update, user passwords are excluded from these error messages to avoid the exposure of authentication credentials.

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated spacewalk-backend packages that fix one security issue and two bugs
are now available for Red Hat Network Satellite 5.4.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low
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.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.4 (RHEL v.5) - noarch
Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.4 (RHEL v.6) - noarch

3. Description:

Red Hat Network (RHN) Satellite is a systems management tool for
Linux-based infrastructures. It allows for provisioning, monitoring, and
remote management of multiple Linux deployments with a single, centralized
tool.

If a user submitted a system registration XML-RPC call to an RHN Satellite
server (for example, by running "rhnreg_ks") and that call failed, their
RHN user password was included in plain text in the error messages both
stored in the server log and mailed to the server administrator. With this
update, user passwords are excluded from these error messages to avoid the
exposure of authentication credentials. (CVE-2012-0059)

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* When activating a new RHN Satellite certificate that has less
entitlements than is currently used or allotted on the Satellite server,
the error message notified the user only about the first problem
encountered and did not include directions for resolution. With this
update, more verbose error messages are shown in this scenario. (BZ#209514,
BZ#704623)

All users of Red Hat Network Satellite are advised to upgrade to these
updated packages, which correct these issues. For this update to take
effect, Red Hat Network Satellite must be restarted. Refer to the Solution
section for details.

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
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259

Run the following command to restart the Red Hat Network Satellite
server:

# rhn-satellite restart

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

749890 - Mask passwords from xmlrpc tracebacks
782819 - CVE-2012-0059 Satellite, Spacewalk: RHN user password disclosure upon failed system registration
