RHEL 7 : atomic-openshift (RHSA-2016:2915)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 119386


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


An update for atomic-openshift is now available for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.1, 3.2, and 3.3.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

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

This advisory contains the RPM packages for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform releases,, and See the following advisory for the container images for these releases :


Security Fix(es) :

* An input validation flaw was found in the way OpenShift handles requests for images. A user, with a copy of the manifest associated with an image, can pull an image even if they do not have access to the image normally, resulting in the disclosure of any information contained within the image. (CVE-2016-8651)

Bug Fix(es) for OpenShift Container Platform 3.3 :

* Previously when rapidly updating multiple namespaces controlled by a single ClusterResourceQuota, the status.total.used can get out of sync with the sum of the status.namespaces[*].used. This bug fix ensures the ClusterResourceQuota objects are properly updated. (BZ#1400200)

* When using the `oc new-app --search` command in an environment where OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) could not reach Docker Hub, the command failed for any query. OCP now prints a warning and continues with what was found in other sources. (BZ#1388524)

* The OpenShift Container Platform node daemon did not recover properly from restarts, and it lost information about attached and mounted volumes. In rare cases, the daemon deleted all data on a mounted volume, thinking that it has been already unmounted while it was only missing its node's cache. This bug fix ensures node caches are recovered after restarts, and as a result no data loss occurs on the mounted volumes. (BZ#1398417)

* Previously, ScheduledJobs were not cleaned up on project deletion.
If a new project was created with the same project name, the previously-defined ScheduledJobs would re-appear. This bug fix ensures ScheduledJobs are removed when a project is removed. (BZ#1399700)

Bug Fix(es) for OpenShift Container Platform 3.2 :

* When using the `oc new-app --search` command in an environment where OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) could not reach Docker Hub, the command failed for any query. OCP now prints a warning and continues with what was found in other sources. (BZ#1388522)

All OpenShift Container Platform users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages and images.
