It was found that access to private bookmarks of users is not properly restricted in Foreman. This could allow an attacker to view the search terms used in these bookmarks which should be private.

Description Adam Mariš 2016-02-22 13:43:33 UTC
It was reported that users can access private bookmarks of other users via bookmark list. This discloses the search terms stored by other users that are intended to be private. Moreover, both API and UI allow a user to update/change or delete other user's bookmarks if they have general edit/destroy permissions.
