Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated rhevm packages that fix one security issue are now available.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
Moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from
the CVE link in the References section.

The Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager is a centralized
management platform that allows system administrators to view and
manage virtual machines. The Manager provides a comprehensive range of
features including search capabilities, resource management, live
migrations, and virtual infrastructure provisioning.

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-engine REST API resolved entities in XML
API calls. A remote attacker with credentials to call the ovirt-engine
REST API could use this flaw to read files accessible to the user
running the ovirt-engine JBoss server, and potentially perform other
more advanced XXE attacks. (CVE-2014-3485)

This issue was discovered by David Jorm of Red Hat Product Security.

All Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager users are advised to
upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
