Red Hat CloudForms Management Engine delivers the insight, control, and
automation enterprises need to address the challenges of managing virtual
environments, which are far more complex than physical ones. This
technology enables enterprises with existing virtual infrastructures
to improve visibility and control, and those just starting virtualization
deployments to build and operate a well-managed virtual infrastructure.

It was found that sending a GET request for a destructive action could
bypass the Ruby on Rails protect_from_forgery mechanism. A remote attacker
could use this flaw to perform Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks
against CloudForms applications. (CVE-2013-6443)

This issue was discovered by Martin Povolný of Red Hat.

This update fixes several bugs and adds multiple enhancements.
Documentation for these changes will be available shortly from the Red Hat
CloudForms 3.0 Management Engine 5.2 Technical Notes linked to in the
References section.

packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues and add
these enhancements.

relevant to your system have been applied.
