Synopsis :

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

Description :

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager 3.5.0 is now available.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important
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 discovered that the HttpClient incorrectly extracted the host
name from an X.509 certificate subject's Common Name (CN) field. A
man-in-the-middle attacker could use this flaw to spoof an SSL server
using a specially crafted X.509 certificate. (CVE-2012-6153,

A Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) flaw was found in the oVirt REST
API. 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 trigger calls to the oVirt REST API.

It was found that the oVirt web admin interface did not include the
HttpOnly flag when setting session IDs with the Set-Cookie header.
This flaw could make it is easier for a remote attacker to hijack an
oVirt web admin session by leveraging a cross-site scripting (XSS)
vulnerability. (CVE-2014-0154)

The CVE-2012-6153 issue was discovered by Florian Weimer 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 3.5 Manager Release Notes
document, linked to in the References, for information on the most
