The OpenShift Management Console provides a web interface for managing
OpenShift Enterprise.

It was found that the OpenShift Management Console did not protect against
Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks. If a remote attacker could trick
a user, who was logged into the OpenShift Management Console, into visiting
an attacker controlled web page, the attacker could make changes to
applications hosted within OpenShift Enterprise with the privileges of the
victim which may lead to arbitrary code execution in the OpenShift Enterprise
hosted applications. (CVE-2012-5622)

This issue was discovered by Red Hat.

All users of the OpenShift Management Console are advised to upgrade to
this updated package, which corrects this issue. Before installing the
updated package, stop the openshift-console service. After the package has
been installed, start the openshift-console service.
