Synopsis

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

Description

Updated openshift packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat OpenShift Enterprise 3.0 and 3.1.

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.

OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat is the company's cloud computing Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution designed for on-premise or private cloud deployments.

It was found that OpenShift's API back end did not verify requests for pod log locations, allowing a pod on a Node to request logs for any other pod on that Node. A remote attacker could use this flaw to view sensitive information via pod logs that they would normally not have access to. (CVE-2015-7528)

This issue was discovered by Jordan Liggitt of Red Hat Atomic OpenShift.

All OpenShift Enterprise 3.0 and 3.1 users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct this issue.
