Description Hardik Vyas 2020-06-09 05:49:45 UTC
While requesting a new block volume creation, at Heketi we dump the sensitive gluster-block volumes PASSWORD details in the logs. This is a very old bug, starting from the introduction of block volume support to heketi-v6.0.0.

Comment 2 Hardik Vyas 2020-06-09 05:49:51 UTC

The version of heketi shipped with Red Hat Gluster Storage 3 does not filter out gluster-block volume passwords, hence affected by this vulnerability.

Comment 3 Hardik Vyas 2020-06-09 05:49:53 UTC

Mitigation for this issue is either not available or the currently available options do not meet the Red Hat Product Security criteria comprising ease of use and deployment, applicability to widespread installation base or stability.

Comment 8 Jason Shepherd 2020-07-07 00:32:15 UTC
OpenShift 3.11 uses heketi-v4.0.0-95-gaaf40619 which isn't affected by this issue.

The efs-provisioner container in OpenShift 4 doesn't include the vulnerable package (executors/cmdexec/block_volume) [1]
