    Advisory ID:       RHSA-2019:3255-01
    Product:           Red Hat Gluster Storage
    Advisory URL:
    Issue date:        2019-10-30
    CVE Names:         CVE-2019-3899 
    1. Summary:
    Updated heketi packages that fix one security issue, multiple bugs, and
    adds various enhancements is now available for OpenShift Container Storage
    3.11 Batch 4 Update.
    Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
    of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
    gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
    the CVE link(s) in the References section.
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    Red Hat Gluster Storage Server 3.5 on RHEL-7 - x86_64
    Red Hat Storage Native Client for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 - x86_64
    3. Description:
    Heketi provides a RESTful management interface that can be used to manage
    the life cycle of GlusterFS volumes. With Heketi, cloud services like
    OpenStack Manila, Kubernetes, and OpenShift can dynamically provision
    GlusterFS volumes with any of the supported durability types. Heketi will
    automatically determine the location for bricks across the cluster, making
    sure to place bricks and its replicas across different failure domains.
    Heketi also supports any number of GlusterFS clusters, allowing cloud
    services to provide network file storage without being limited to a single
    GlusterFS cluster.
    The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
    heketi (9.0.0). (BZ#1710080)
    Security Fix(es):
    * heketi: heketi can be installed using insecure defaults (CVE-2019-3899)
    For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
    score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE
    page(s) listed in the References section.
    Bug Fix(es):
    * Previously, it was easy to inadvertently set Heketi up in an unsecured
    way which increased the risk of unauthorized users to make changes to the
    storage managed by Heketi. The default settings have changed to require
    users to configure authentication and to make disabling authentication
    unintentionally more difficult. (BZ#1701838)
    * Previously, when Heketi executed commands within OpenShift/Kubernetes
    pods, the commands were executed without a timeout specified. Hence, some
    commands never returned which differed from the SSH executor which always
    executes commands with a timeout. With this update, the commands that are
    executed in the gluster containers have a timeout specified. The timeout
    values are the same regardless of what connection type is used.
    * Previously, if Heketi managed multiple clusters and it failed to create
    volumes on any of the clusters it would return a generic "No space" error
    message. With this update, error messages produced when heketi manages
    multiple gluster clusters have been improved. Heketi now displays specific
    errors for when the cluster has no nodes or none of the nodes have usable
    devices and also reports on each cluster's error by prefixing cluster
    errors with the cluster ID. (BZ#1577803)
    * Previously, if operation cleanup was requested from the server
    simultaneously, the server would try to initiate cleanup for the same
    operation twice. This triggered panic in the server. With this update, the
    server no longer panics if two operation cleanups are requested at the same
    time. (BZ#1702162)
    * When a node is removed or added to a gluster trusted storage pool using
    heketi, the existing endpoints do not get updated automatically. With this
    update, to update the endpoints after node addition/removal, users can now
    execute the following commands:
    1. heketi-cli volume endpoint patch 
    2. oc patch ep  -p  (BZ#1660681)
    * With this update, Heketi tracks additional metadata associated with disk
    devices even if the path of the device changes. The outputs of some
    commands have been updated to reflect the additional metadata. (BZ#1609553)
    Users of Heketi are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
    adds these enhancements and fix these bugs.
