Scientific Linux Security Update : conga on SL5.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

It was discovered that luci stored usernames and passwords in session
cookies. This issue prevented the session inactivity timeout feature
from working correctly, and allowed attackers able to get access to a
session cookie to obtain the victim's authentication credentials.
(CVE-2012-3359)

This update also fixes the following bugs :

- Prior to this update, luci did not allow the
fence_apc_snmp agent to be configured. As a consequence,
users could not configure or view an existing
configuration for fence_apc_snmp. This update adds a new
screen that allows fence_apc_snmp to be configured.

- Prior to this update, luci did not allow the SSL
operation of the fence_ilo fence agent to be enabled or
disabled. As a consequence, users could not configure or
view an existing configuration for the 'ssl' attribute
for fence_ilo. This update adds a checkbox to show
whether the SSL operation is enabled and allows users to
edit that attribute.

- Prior to this update, luci did not allow the
'identity_file' attribute of the fence_ilo_mp fence
agent to be viewed or edited. As a consequence, users
could not configure or view an existing configuration
for the 'identity_file' attribute of the fence_ilo_mp
fence agent. This update adds a text input box to show
the current state of the 'identity_file' attribute of
fence_ilo_mp and allows users to edit that attribute.

- Prior to this update, redundant files and directories
remained on the file system at /var/lib/luci/var/pts and
/usr/lib{,64}/luci/zope/var/pts when the luci package
was uninstalled. This update removes these files and
directories when the luci package is uninstalled.

- Prior to this update, the 'restart-disable' recovery
policy was not displayed in the recovery policy list
from which users could select when they configure a
recovery policy for a failover domain. As a consequence,
the 'restart-disable' recovery policy could not be set
with the luci GUI. This update adds the
'restart-disable' recovery option to the recovery policy
pulldown list.

- Prior to this update, line breaks that were not
anticipated in the 'yum list' output could cause package
upgrade and/or installation to fail when creating
clusters or adding nodes to existing clusters. As a
consequence, creating clusters and adding cluster nodes
to existing clusters could fail. This update modifies
the ricci daemon to be able to correctly handle line
breaks in the 'yum list' output.

In addition, this update adds the following enhancements :

- This update adds support for configuring the Intel iPDU
fence agent to the luci package.

- This update adds support for viewing and changing the
state of the new 'nfsrestart' attribute to the FS and
Cluster FS resource agent configuration screens.

After installing this update, the luci and ricci services will be
restarted automatically.
