Insight

Insight

The rgmanager package contains the Red Hat Resource Group Manager, which provides the ability to create and manage high-availability server applications in the event of system downtime. It was discovered that certain resource agent scripts set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to an insecure value containing empty path elements. A local user able to trick a user running those scripts to run them while working from an attacker-writable directory could use this flaw to escalate their privileges via a specially-crafted dynamic library. (CVE-2010-3389) Red Hat would like to thank Raphael Geissert for reporting this issue. This update also fixes the following bugs: * The failover domain 'nofailback' option was not honored if a service was in the 'starting' state. This bug has been fixed. (BZ#669440) * PID files with white spaces in the file name are now handled correctly. (BZ#632704) * The /usr/sbin/rhev-check.sh script can now be used from within Cron. (BZ#634225) * The clustat utility now reports the correct version. (BZ#654160) * The oracledb.sh agent now attempts to try the 'shutdown immediate' command instead of using the 'shutdown abort' command. (BZ#633992) * The SAPInstance and SAPDatabase scripts now use proper directory name quoting so they no longer collide with directory names like '/u'. (BZ#637154) * The clufindhostname utility now returns the correct value in all cases. (BZ#592613) * The nfsclient resource agent now handles paths with trailing slashes correctly. (BZ#592624) * The last owner of a service is now reported correctly after a failover. (BZ#610483) * The /usr/share/cluster/fs.sh script no longer runs the 'quotaoff' command if quotas were not configured. (BZ#637678) * The 'listen' line in the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file generated by the Apache resource agent is now correct. (BZ#675739) * The tomcat-5 resource agent no longer generates incorrect configurations. (BZ#637802) * The time required to stop an NFS resource when the server is unavailable has been reduced. (BZ#678494) * When using exclusive prioritization, a higher priority service now preempts a lower priority service after status check failures. (BZ#680256) * The postgres-8 resource agent now correctly detects failed start operations. (BZ#663827) * The handling of reference counts passed by rgmanager to resource agents now works properly, as expected. (BZ#692771) As well, this update adds the ...
