CVE-2013-4411 ReviewBoard: URL processing allows unauthorized users to view review lists
Last modified: 2015-01-05 12:12:38 EST
=== Summary ===
A flaw in the Review Board dashboard URL-processing logic makes it
possible for a user to construct a URL that would reveal review
requests for review groups to which the user does not belong.
=== Affected Deployments ===
All Review Board deployments are vulnerable to this flaw.
=== Scope ===
This flaw is only of particular risk to those deployments relying on
review groups to restrict access to private reviews, such as those
that may contain confidential intellectual property or provide
information about embargoed security issues.
This attack is possible to execute remotely through the Review Board
=== Resolution ===
Code was added to the URL handling to return a 404 (not found) error
when requesting reviews in groups to which the account does not belong.
=== 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.
This is to be unembargoed on Thursday October 10th.
