Description Francesco Romani 2015-11-05 07:21:09 EST
Description of problem:
VDSM leverages the 'umask' argument of cpopen to make sure some image it creates have the right permissions right from the start, so possibly sensitive information from the images does not leak.

We want to make cpopen API identical to standard subprocess one, so we should find a different way to run the same command without the 'umask' argument, so we can drop it from cpopen

Comment 1 Francesco Romani 2015-12-08 13:21:22 EST
The fix will be completely transparent to any user flow, otherwise it's a regression (!).

To test this change, trigger any flow which requires VDSM to build an ISO image on the fly, for example run a VM with cloud-init, or sysprep.
VM should run as usual. The newly-created image will be located under /var/run/vdsm/payload and should not be world-readable.
