Fixed In Version: elasticsearch-operator-container 4.7
Doc Type: ---
Doc Text:
The elasticsearch-operator does not validate the namespace where kibana logging resource is created and due to that it is possible to replace the original openshift-logging console link (kibana console) to different one, created based on the new CR for the new kibana resource. This could lead to an arbitrary URL redirection or the openshift cluster logging console link damage.

Description Przemyslaw Roguski 2020-11-30 12:56:47 UTC
In the OpenShift Container Platform  4.x the kibana logging console might be manipulated or even completely damaged by any user who create kibana resource in a non openshift-logging namespace. Due to that the console links is recreated by the elasticsearch-operator based on the new CR. If the new kibana resource is removed then the openshift-logging console link does not back to the original one but completely is lost.

This flaw could lead to an arbitrary URL redirection or the openshift-logging console link full damage.
