3. Description:

The openshift-origin-node-util package provides a set of utility scripts
for a node. Red Hat OpenShift Enterprise is a cloud computing
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution designed for on-premise or private
cloud deployments.

A flaw was found in the way the administrative web interface for restoring
applications (restorer.php) processed options passed to it. A remote
attacker could send a specially-crafted request to restorer.php that would
result in the query string being parsed as command line options and
arguments. This could lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges
of an arbitrary application. (CVE-2012-5646)

An open redirect flaw was found in restorer.php. A remote attacker able to
trick a victim into opening the restorer.php page using a specially-crafted
link could redirect the victim to an arbitrary page. (CVE-2012-5647)

These issues were discovered by Michael Scherer of the Red Hat Regional IT

All users of Red Hat OpenShift Enterprise are advised to upgrade to this
updated package, which corrects these issues.
