Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-0898-01
Posted Apr 12, 2017
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-0898-01 - Red Hat CloudForms Management Engine delivers the insight, control, and automation needed to address the challenges of managing virtual environments. CloudForms Management Engine is built on Ruby on Rails, a model-view-controller framework for web application development. Action Pack implements the controller and the view components. Security Fix: A number of unused delete routes are present in CloudForms which can be accessed via GET requests instead of just POST requests. This could allow an attacker to bypass the protect_from_forgery XSRF protection causing the routes to be used. This attack would require additional cross-site scripting or similar attacks in order to execute.
