Description

Red Hat Satellite is a system management tool for Linux-based infrastructures. It allows for provisioning, monitoring, and the remote management of multiple Linux deployments with a single, centralized tool.

Security Fix(es):

  • A stored cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way spacewalk-java displayed monitoring probes. An attacker can embed HTML and Javascript in the values for RHNMD User or Filesystem parameters in Satellite, allowing them to inject malicious content into the web page that is then displayed with that probe data. (CVE-2016-3080)

  • A stored cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way spacewalk-java displayed group names. An attacker can embed HTML and Javascript in the values for group names in Satellite, allowing them to inject malicious content into the web page that is then displayed when viewing the snapshot data. (CVE-2016-3097)

These issues were discovered by Jan Hutař (Red Hat).
