CVE-2015-5242 swiftonfile: use of insecure Python pickle for metadata serialization and storage
Last modified: 2015-10-21 00:06:42 EDT
A flaw was found in the way swiftonfile (gluster-swift) serializes and stores metadata on disk by using Python's pickle module (https://docs.python.org/2/library/pickle.html). Exploiting this flaw causes remote code execution of arbitrary code on the storage node.
This issue has been addressed in the following products:
Red Hat Gluster Storage 3.1 for RHEL 6
Red Hat Gluster Storage 3.1 for RHEL 7
