CVE-2011-4952 cobbler (cobbler-web): Absent CSRF protection when using Django framework
Last modified: 2016-03-04 06:41:23 EST
It was found that when starting to use the Python Django web framework, the web interface of Cobbler, a network install server, failed to apply the Django built-in CSRF protection. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted web page, which once visited by an unsuspecting, valid Cobbler web interface user would potentially lead to unauthorized actions execution in the context of authenticated Cobbler user (the victim).
Ubuntu patch by Robie Basak:
This issue affects the versions of the cobbler package, as shipped with Fedora
EPEL 5 and Fedora EPEL 6. Please schedule an update.
As of right now, this issue did NOT affect the current versions of the cobbler
package, as shipped with Fedora release of 15 and 16 (the cobbler-2.0.11-3.*
versions). But since there are cobbler-2.2.2-1.fc* versions scheduled to get
next stable versions and these are affected too, please schedule Fedora release
15 and 16 cobbler package versions updates too.
