Scientific Linux Security Update : pcs on SL7.x x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

The following packages have been upgraded to a newer upstream version:
pcs (0.9.152).

Security Fix(es) :

- A Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) flaw was found in
the pcsd web UI. A remote attacker could provide a
specially crafted web page that, when visited by a user
with a valid pcsd session, would allow the attacker to
trigger requests on behalf of the user, for example
removing resources or restarting/removing nodes.
(CVE-2016-0720)

- It was found that pcsd did not invalidate cookies on the
server side when a user logged out. This could
potentially allow an attacker to perform session
fixation attacks on pcsd. (CVE-2016-0721)

These issues were discovered by Martin Prpic (Red Hat Product
Security).
