Description

An updated swiftonfile package that fixes one security issue is now available for Red Hat Gluster Storage 3.1 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important 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.

Red Hat Gluster Storage is a software only scale-out storage solution that provides flexible and affordable unstructured data storage. It unifies data storage and infrastructure, increases performance, and improves availability and manageability to meet enterprise-level storage challenges.

Red Hat Gluster Storage's Unified File and Object Storage is built on OpenStack's Object Storage (swift).

A flaw was found in the way swiftonfile (gluster-swift) serialized and stored metadata on disk by using Python's pickle module. A remote, authenticated user could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code on the storage node. (CVE-2015-5242)

For more information about CVE-2015-5242, please see https://access.redhat.com/solutions/1985893

Red Hat would like to thank Bill Owen of IBM for reporting this issue.

All swiftonfile users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch to correct this issue.
