Description Sam Fowler 2018-01-09 02:51:45 UTC
Cobbler version up to 2.8.2 is vulnerable to a command injection vulnerability in the "Mirror" field of the "Adding a Repo" form. A remote user could exploit this to execute arbitrary code as root.

Comment 3 Kurt Seifried 2018-01-12 01:41:26 UTC

Red Hat Satellite 5 is now in Production 3 Phase of the support and maintenance life cycle. The cobbler API has a user associated with it however the password is a randomly generated  64 character string, making the API inaccessible. This has been rated as having Low security impact and is not currently planned to be addressed in future updates. For additional information, refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Life Cycle: https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata/.
