Synopsis :

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

Description :

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager 3.4.2 is now available.

Red Hat Product Security 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.

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 discovered that, when loading XML/RSDL documents, the oVirt
Engine back end module used an insecure DocumentBuilderFactory. A
remote, authenticated attacker could use this flaw to read files
accessible to the user running the ovirt-engine server, and
potentially perform other more advanced XML External Entity (XXE)
attacks. (CVE-2014-3573)

This issue was discovered by Arun Babu Neelicattu of Red Hat Product
Security.

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.
