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.

An access flaw was discovered in OpenShift; the /etc/origin/master/master-config.yaml configuration file, which could contain Active Directory credentials, was world-readable. A local user could exploit this flaw to obtain authentication credentials from the master-config.yaml file. (CVE-2016-2142)

If you believe that the password in this file has been viewed by an attacker you should reset the password after installing this update.
