Red Hat Security Advisory 2014-0469-01 - Red Hat CloudForms Management Engine delivers the insight, control, and automation needed to address the challenges of managing virtual environments. A flaw was found in the way Ruby on Rails' actionpack rubygem performed JSON parameter parsing. An application using a third party library, which uses the Rack::Request interface, or custom Rack middleware could bypass the protection implemented to fix the CVE-2013-0155 vulnerability, causing the application to receive unsafe parameters and become vulnerable to CVE-2013-0155.

vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Management Engine - noarch, x86_64

3. Description:

Red Hat CloudForms Management Engine delivers the insight, control, and
automation needed to address the challenges of managing virtual
environments.

A flaw was found in the way Ruby on Rails' actionpack rubygem performed
JSON parameter parsing. An application using a third party library, which
uses the Rack::Request interface, or custom Rack middleware could bypass
the protection implemented to fix the CVE-2013-0155 vulnerability, causing
the application to receive unsafe parameters and become vulnerable to
CVE-2013-0155. (CVE-2013-6417)

An input sanitization flaw was found in the saved_report_delete action in
the ReportController. An authenticated Management Engine user could use
this flaw to perform an SQL injection attack on the Management Engine back
end database. (CVE-2014-0137)

It was found that Red Hat CloudForms Management Engine did not properly
check user role permissions for actions associated with catalogs.
An authenticated Management Engine user could use this flaw to delete
arbitrary catalogs regardless of the granted permissions. (CVE-2014-0078)

Multiple stack-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the date/time
implementation of PostgreSQL. An authenticated database user could provide
a specially crafted date/time value that, when processed, could cause
PostgreSQL to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the
permissions of the user running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2014-0063)

Multiple integer overflow flaws, leading to heap-based buffer overflows,
were found in various type input functions in PostgreSQL. An authenticated
database user could possibly use these flaws to crash PostgreSQL or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user
running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2014-0064, CVE-2014-2669)

Multiple potential buffer overflow flaws were found in PostgreSQL.
An authenticated database user could possibly use these flaws to crash
PostgreSQL or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of
the user running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2014-0065)

It was found that granting an SQL role to a database user in a PostgreSQL
database without specifying the "ADMIN" option allowed the grantee to
remove other users from their granted role. An authenticated database user
could use this flaw to remove a user from an SQL role which they were
granted access to. (CVE-2014-0060)

A flaw was found in the validator functions provided by PostgreSQL's
procedural languages. An authenticated database user could possibly use
this flaw to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2014-0061)

A race condition was found in the way PostgreSQL's CREATE INDEX command
performed multiple independent lookups of a table that had to be indexed.
An authenticated database user could possibly use this flaw to escalate
their privileges. (CVE-2014-0062)

It was found that the chkpass extension of PostgreSQL did not check the
return value of the crypt() function. An authenticated database user could
possibly use this flaw to crash PostgreSQL via a null pointer dereference.
(CVE-2014-0066)

Red Hat would like to thank the Ruby on Rails project for reporting
CVE-2013-6417; upstream acknowledges Sudhir Rao as the original reporter
of this issue.

Red Hat would also like to thank the PostgreSQL project for reporting
CVE-2014-0060, CVE-2014-0061, CVE-2014-0062, CVE-2014-0063, CVE-2014-0064,
CVE-2014-0065, CVE-2014-0066, and CVE-2014-2669; upstream acknowledges Noah
Misch, Heikki Linnakangas, Peter Eisentraut, Jozef Mlich, Andres Freund,
Robert Haas, Honza Horak, and Bruce Momjian as the original reporters of
these issues.

The CVE-2014-0137 and CVE-2014-0078 issues were discovered by Jan Rusnacko
of the Red Hat Product Security Team.

4. Solution:

These updated packages upgrade PostgreSQL to version 9.2.7, which fixes
these issues as well as several non-security issues. Refer to the
PostgreSQL Release Notes for a full list of changes:

http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.2/static/release-9-2-7.html

This update also fixes several bugs and adds various enhancements.
Documentation for these changes will be available shortly from the
Technical Notes document linked to in the References section.

All users of Red Hat CloudForms 3.0 are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which correct these issues and add these enhancements.

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/site/articles/11258
