Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
The pcs Linux Distribution Packages provide a command-line tool and a web UI to configure and manage the Pacemaker and Corosync tools. It was found that the pcs daemon did not sign cookies containing session data that were sent to clients connecting via the pcsd web UI. A remote attacker could use this flaw to forge cookies and bypass authorization checks, possibly gaining elevated privileges in the pcsd web UI. (CVE-2015-1848) This issue was discovered by Tomas Jelinek of Red Hat. This update also fixes the following bug: * Previously, the Corosync tool allowed the two_node option and the auto_tie_breaker option to exist in the corosync.conf file at the same time. As a consequence, if both options were included, auto_tie_breaker was silently ignored and the two_node fence race decided which node would survive in the event of a communication break. With this update, the pcs daemon has been fixed so that it does not produce corosync.conf files with both two_node and auto_tie_breaker included. In addition, if both two_node and auto_tie_breaker are detected in corosync.conf, Corosync issues a message at start-up and disables two_node mode. As a result, auto_tie_breaker effectively overrides two_node mode if both options are specified. (BZ#1205848) All pcs users are advised to upgrade to these updated Linux Distribution Packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing the updated Linux Distribution Packages, the pcsd daemon will be restarted automatically.

Affected Versions:

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
