Description

Red Hat CloudForms Management Engine delivers the insight, control, and automation needed to address the challenges of managing virtual environments.

A flaw was found in the way Ruby on Rails' actionpack rubygem performed JSON parameter parsing. An application using a third party library, which uses the Rack::Request interface, or custom Rack middleware could bypass the protection implemented to fix the CVE-2013-0155 vulnerability, causing the application to receive unsafe parameters and become vulnerable to CVE-2013-0155. (CVE-2013-6417)

An input sanitization flaw was found in the saved_report_delete action in the ReportController. An authenticated Management Engine user could use this flaw to perform an SQL injection attack on the Management Engine back end database. (CVE-2014-0137)

It was found that Red Hat CloudForms Management Engine did not properly check user role permissions for actions associated with catalogs. An authenticated Management Engine user could use this flaw to delete arbitrary catalogs regardless of the granted permissions. (CVE-2014-0078)

Multiple stack-based buffer overflow flaws were found in the date/time implementation of PostgreSQL. An authenticated database user could provide a specially crafted date/time value that, when processed, could cause PostgreSQL to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2014-0063)

Multiple integer overflow flaws, leading to heap-based buffer overflows, were found in various type input functions in PostgreSQL. An authenticated database user could possibly use these flaws to crash PostgreSQL or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2014-0064, CVE-2014-2669)

Multiple potential buffer overflow flaws were found in PostgreSQL. An authenticated database user could possibly use these flaws to crash PostgreSQL or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running PostgreSQL. (CVE-2014-0065)

It was found that granting an SQL role to a database user in a PostgreSQL database without specifying the "ADMIN" option allowed the grantee to remove other users from their granted role. An authenticated database user could use this flaw to remove a user from an SQL role which they were granted access to. (CVE-2014-0060)

A flaw was found in the validator functions provided by PostgreSQL's procedural languages. An authenticated database user could possibly use this flaw to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2014-0061)

A race condition was found in the way PostgreSQL's CREATE INDEX command performed multiple independent lookups of a table that had to be indexed. An authenticated database user could possibly use this flaw to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2014-0062)

It was found that the chkpass extension of PostgreSQL did not check the return value of the crypt() function. An authenticated database user could possibly use this flaw to crash PostgreSQL via a null pointer dereference. (CVE-2014-0066)

Red Hat would like to thank the Ruby on Rails project for reporting CVE-2013-6417; upstream acknowledges Sudhir Rao as the original reporter of this issue.

Red Hat would also like to thank the PostgreSQL project for reporting CVE-2014-0060, CVE-2014-0061, CVE-2014-0062, CVE-2014-0063, CVE-2014-0064, CVE-2014-0065, CVE-2014-0066, and CVE-2014-2669; upstream acknowledges Noah Misch, Heikki Linnakangas, Peter Eisentraut, Jozef Mlich, Andres Freund, Robert Haas, Honza Horak, and Bruce Momjian as the original reporters of these issues.

The CVE-2014-0137 and CVE-2014-0078 issues were discovered by Jan Rusnacko of the Red Hat Product Security Team.
