Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1060-01 - Cobbler is a network install server. Cobbler supports PXE, virtualized installs, and re-installing existing Linux machines. A command injection flaw was found in Cobbler's power management XML-RPC method. A remote, authenticated user who is permitted to perform Cobbler configuration changes via the Cobbler XML-RPC API, could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with root privileges on the Red Hat Network Satellite server. Note: Red Hat Network Satellite uses a special user account to configure Cobbler. By default, only this account is permitted to perform Cobbler configuration changes, and the credentials for the account are only accessible to the Satellite host's administrator. As such, this issue only affected environments where the administrator allowed other users to make Cobbler configuration changes.
