The openshift-origin-broker-util package provides utility scripts for the OpenShift Broker service, which manages all user logins, DNS name resolution, application states, and general orchestration of the applications.
It was discovered that the mcollective client.cfg configuration file was world-readable by default. A malicious, local user on a host with the OpenShift Broker installed could read sensitive information regarding the mcollective installation, including mcollective authentication credentials. A malicious user able to obtain said credentials would potentially have full control over all OpenShift nodes managed via mcollective. (CVE-2014-0164)
This issue was discovered by Jeremy Choi of the Red Hat Quality Engineering Group.
All openshift-origin-broker-util users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which corrects this issue.
