Description Stephen Gallagher 2013-10-08 07:38:37 EDT
=== Summary ===
Certain functions within Review Board's REST API were not properly
validating authorization decisions against access-control lists.

=== Affected Deployments ===
This CVE affects Review Board deployments using the "local sites"
feature or those using "private review requests".

=== Scope ===
If the attacker was aware of specific database table IDs, it was
possible to gain access to restricted data. This vulnerability does
not lead directly to a compromise of a machine or denial of service,
but may expose sensitive information such as details about other
embargoed security issues or confidential intellectual property.

This attack would be possible through the remote public API.

=== Resolution ===
Code was added to ensure that such objects are now filtered out of
requests made by accounts that do not have access to this information.

=== Acknowledgements ===
Christian Hammond, lead upstream developer of Review Board is credited
with discovering and correcting this vulnerability.

=== Embargo Information ===
Upstream has coordinated with packagers of various distributions and cloud application vendors to lift the embargo on Thursday, October 8, 2013. This BZ should become public at that time.


Upstream has requested that Red Hat please coordinate the issuance of a CVE for this vulnerability.
