CentOS Update for rgmanager CESA-2011:1000 centos5 x86_64

Published: 2012-07-30 11:49:46
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

The remote host is missing an update for the 'rgmanager' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
rgmanager on CentOS 5

Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Technical Details:
The rgmanager Linux Distribution 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 ...

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".
