Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager 3.4 is now available.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
Moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for
each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager is a visual tool for
centrally managing collections of virtual servers running Red Hat
Enterprise Linux and Microsoft Windows. This package also includes the
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager API, a set of scriptable
commands that give administrators the ability to perform queries and
operations on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager.

The Manager is a JBoss Application Server application that provides
several interfaces through which the virtual environment can be
accessed and interacted with, including an Administration Portal, a
User Portal, and a Representational State Transfer (REST) Application
Programming Interface (API).

It was found that the oVirt web admin interface did not generate a new
session ID after authenticating a user. A remote attacker could use
this flaw to perform session fixation attacks. (CVE-2014-0152)

It was found that the oVirt web admin interface stored session IDs in
HTML5 local storage. A remote attacker could provide a specially
crafted web page that, when visited by a user with a valid REST API
session, would allow the attacker to read the session ID from local
storage. This is possible because HTML5 local storage is not protected
by the same-origin policy (SOP). (CVE-2014-0153)

These updated Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager packages also
include numerous bug fixes and various enhancements. Space precludes
documenting all of these changes in this advisory. Users are directed
to the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.4 Technical Notes, linked
to in the References, for information on the most significant of these
changes.

All Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager users are advised to
upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues and add
these enhancements.
