Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2007-08-17 11:08:45 EDT
During an internal code audit, a flaw was found in an unused back-end xmlrpc
handler added to RHN Satellite 5.0.0.  A remote attacker who is able to connect
to a RHN Satellite server and has valid authentication credentials could use
this flaw to execute arbitrary code on the server as the 'apache' user.

Users of RHN Satellite 5.0.0 are advised to upgrade to 5.0.1 which removes the
unused, vulnerable, handler.

[Note: This issue doesn't affect Red Hat Network hosted, which is how customers
get their updates, it only affects version 5.0.0 of the RHN Satellite product]
