=====================================================================
                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Moderate: conga security, bug fix, and enhancement update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2012:0151-03
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-0151.html
Issue date:        2012-02-21
CVE Names:         CVE-2010-1104 CVE-2011-1948 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated conga packages that fix multiple security issues, several bugs,
and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
from the CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

RHEL Clustering (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, x86_64

3. Description:

The conga packages provide a web-based administration tool for remote
cluster and storage management.

Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in luci, the conga
web-based administration application. If a remote attacker could trick a
user, who was logged into the luci interface, into visiting a
specially-crafted URL, it would lead to arbitrary web script execution in
the context of the user's luci session. (CVE-2010-1104, CVE-2011-1948)

These updated conga packages include several bug fixes and an enhancement.
Space precludes documenting all of these changes in this advisory. Users
are directed to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.8 Technical Notes, linked to
in the References, for information on the most significant of these
changes.

Users of conga are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct these issues and add this enhancement. After installing the updated
packages, luci must be restarted ("service luci restart") for the update to
take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

577019 - CVE-2010-1104 zope: XSS on error page
711494 - CVE-2011-1948 plone: A reflected cross site scripting vulnerability
723188 - Luci does not allow to modify __max_restarts and __restart_expire_time for independent subtrees, only for non-critical resources.
755935 - luci_admin man page is misleading
755941 - luci_admin restore is not consistent
