Description Nick Tait 2024-01-31 20:53:18 UTC
The below issue was reported to ProdSec by Simon Pasquier:

In OCP, the telemeter-client pod running in the
openshift-monitoring has an annotation containing the cluster's pull secret
for the cloud.openshift.com and quay.io registries.

The cause of the bug is that we use the token string concatenated with the
hash [2] instead of writing the token string to the hash object and calling
Sum() with a nil slice.

The impact is that any user which can read the definition of the
telemeter-client pod and/or deployment gets access to the pull secret
token. Users with permissions from the cluster-reader clusterrole already
have access to the original pull secret because they can read the
"pull-secret" Secret in the openshift-config namespace.

The issue has been present since OCP 4.12 [3] [4].
