RHEL 5 / 6 : spacewalk-java (RHSA-2014:1762)

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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated spacewalk-java packages that fix one security issue are now
available for Red Hat Satellite 5.5 and 5.6.

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 Satellite is a systems management tool for Linux-based
infrastructures. It allows for provisioning, monitoring, and remote
management of multiple Linux deployments with a single, centralized
tool. The spacewalk-java packages contain the code for the Java
version of the Spacewalk Website.

Stored and reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in
the way spacewalk-java displayed certain information. By sending a
specially crafted request to Satellite, a remote, authenticated
attacker could embed HTML content into the stored data, allowing them
to inject malicious content into the web page that is used to view
that data. (CVE-2014-3654)

Red Hat would like to thank Ron Bowes of Google for reporting this
issue.

All spacewalk-java users are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
