Synopsis: Important: Red Hat CloudForms security, bug fix, and enhancement update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2017:1758-01
Product: Red Hat CloudForms
Advisory URL: https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2017:1758
Issue date: 2017-08-02

1. Summary:

An update is now available for CloudForms Management Engine 5.8.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

CloudForms Management Engine 5.8 - noarch, x86_64

3. Description:

Ansible is a simple model-driven configuration management, multi-node
deployment, and remote-task execution system. Ansible works over SSH and
does not require any software or daemons to be installed on remote nodes.
Extension modules can be written in any language and are transferred to
managed machines automatically.

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 (MVC) framework for web application development.
Action Pack implements the controller and the view components.

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
ansible (, ansible-tower (3.1.3), cfme (, cfme-appliance
(, cfme-gemset (, rh-ruby23-rubygem-nokogiri (1.7.2).
(BZ#1456017, BZ#1459318)

Security Fix(es):

* CloudForms lacks RBAC controls on certain methods in the rails
application portion of CloudForms. An attacker with access could use a
variety of methods within the rails applications portion of CloudForms to
escalate privileges. (CVE-2017-2664)

* It was found that privilege check is missing when invoking arbitrary
methods via filtering on VMs that MiqExpression will execute that is
triggerable by API users. An attacker could use this to execute actions
they should not be allowed to (e.g. destroying VMs). (CVE-2017-7530)

* The dialog for creating cloud volumes (cinder provider) in CloudForms
does not filter cloud tenants by user. An attacker with the ability to
create storage volumes could use this to create storage volumes for any
other tenant. (CVE-2017-7497)

* A flaw was found in the CloudForms API. A user with permissions to use
the MiqReportResults capability within the API could potentially view data
from other tenants or groups to which they should not have access.

The CVE-2017-2664 issue was discovered by Libor Pichler (Red Hat) and
Martin Povolny (Red Hat); the CVE-2017-7530 issue was discovered by Tim
Wade (Red Hat); the CVE-2017-7497 issue was discovered by Gellert Kis (Red
Hat); and the CVE-2016-7047 issue was discovered by Simon Lukasik (Red
