RHSA-2007:0640: conga security, bug fix, and enhancement update (Moderate)  

The Conga package is a web-based administration tool for remote cluster and storage management.
A flaw was found in ricci during a code audit. A remote attacker who is able to connect to ricci could cause ricci to temporarily refuse additional connections, a denial of service (CVE-2007-4136).
Fixes in this updated package include:
* The nodename is now set for manual fencing.
* The node log no longer displays in random order.
* A bug that prevented a node from responding when a cluster was deleted is now fixed.
* A PAM configuration that incorrectly called the deprecated module pam_stack was removed.
* A bug that prevented some quorum disk configurations from being accepted is now fixed.
* Setting multicast addresses now works properly.
* rpm -V on luci no longer fails.
* The user interface rendering time for storage interface is now faster.
* An error message that incorrectly appeared when rebooting nodes during cluster creation was removed.
* Cluster snaps configuration (an unsupported feature) has been removed altogether to prevent user confusion.
* A user permission bug resulting from a luci code error is now fixed.
* luci and ricci init script return codes are now LSB-compliant.
* VG creation on cluster nodes now defaults to "clustered".
* An SELinux AVC bug that prevented users from setting up shared storage on nodes is now fixed.
* An access error that occurred when attempting to access a cluster node after its cluster was deleted is now fixed.
* IP addresses can now be used to create clusters.
* Attempting to configure a fence device no longer results in an AttributeError.
* Attempting to create a new fence device to a valid cluster no longer results in a KeyError.
* Several minor user interface validation errors have been fixed, such as enforcing cluster name length and fence port, etc.
* A browser lock-up that could occur during storage configuration has been fixed.
* Virtual service creation now works without error.
* The fence_xvm tag is no longer misspelled in the cluster.conf file.
* Luci failover forms are complete and working. * Rebooting a fresh cluster install no longer generates an error message.
* A bug that prevented failed cluster services from being started is now fixed.
* A bug that caused some cluster operations (e.g., node delete) to fail on clusters with mixed-cased cluster names is now fixed.
* Global cluster resources can be reused when constructing cluster services.
Enhancements in this updated package include:
* Users can now access Conga through Internet Explorer 6.
* Dead nodes can now be evicted from a cluster.
* Shared storage on new clusters is now enabled by default.
* The fence user-interface flow is now simpler.
* A port number is now shown in ricci error messages.
* The kmod-gfs-xen kernel module is now installed when creating a cluster.
* Cluster creation status is now shown visually.
* User names are now sorted for display.
* The fence_xvmd tag can now be added from the dom0 cluster nodes.
* The ampersand character (&) can now be used in fence names.
* All packaged files are now installed with proper owners and permissions.
* New cluster node members are now properly initialized.
* Storage operations can now be completed even if an LVM snapshot is present.
* Users are now informed via dialog when nodes are rebooted as part of a cluster operation.
* Failover domains are now properly listed for virtual services and traditional clustered services.
* Luci can now create and distribute keys for fence_xvmd.
All Conga users are advised to upgrade to this update, which applies these fixes and enhancements.

Quick Help

Unknown Tests
There is a hardcoded maximum limit for number of tests displayed for a definition. For a small number of oval definitions, about ~1% of all, hundreds of test have been defined. This causes the pages to grow in size, exceed even 1mb, and they are unsuitable for display in a web page. So they are not displayed.Please refer to the xml definition files if you really want to view them.
