Description Kurt Seifried 2013-09-27 19:26:54 UTC
Dominic Cleal of Red Hat reported an SQL injection vulnerability in 

Host and host group parameter overrides (lookup_values) use a hand-crafted SQL 
query to associate the host/host group to the lookup_value object, as it 
searches for lookup_values with the "fqdn=foo.example.com" or "hostgroup=Foo" 
syntaxes. The association calls a method on the host or host group for the 
matcher string, then puts the response straight into SQL query. By changing 
the host's FQDN or the host group's label, arbitrary SQL can be injected.
