Doc Text:
A flaw was found in the Red Hat Ceph Storage RadosGW (Ceph Object Gateway). The vulnerability is related to the injection of HTTP headers via a CORS ExposeHeader tag. The newline character in the ExposeHeader tag in the CORS configuration file generates a header injection in the response when the CORS request is made.

Description proguski 2020-05-27 14:23:35 UTC
It was reported that "newline" character in the CORS xml configuration file in the ExposeHeader tag can lead to the header injection attack.
When the CORS request is made the response contain the injected header. Using newline characters injected into the HTTP headers, it is possible for the malicious user to add arbitrary headers such as Set-Cookie to set arbitrary cookies.

This impacts the RHCS RadosGW S3 API.
For example malicious user could create a publicly-accessible S3 bucket with such CORS configuration and anyone that accessed that bucket would have these headers injected.

Mitigation for this issue is either not available or the currently available options do not meet the Red Hat Product Security criteria comprising ease of use and deployment, applicability to widespread installation base or stability.

Added all affected products.
Ceph package contains affected radosgw component.

Comment 8 proguski 2020-05-28 15:53:00 UTC

* Red Hat Ceph Storage (RHCS) 3 and 4 are affected by this vulnerability. Note: although this issue affects the RadosGW S3 API, it does not affect the Swift API.
* Red Hat Openshift Container Storage( RHOCS) 4.2 is affected by this flaw. However, because RHOCS 4.2 is now in the Maintenance Phase of support, this issue is not currently planned to be addressed in future updates.
* Red Hat OpenStack Platform (RHOSP) 13 is not affected by this flaw because RHOSP 13 only ships the ceph client libraries and does not build server code.
