Recent Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform Security Vulnerabilities

A path traversal vulnerability exists in Ansible when extracting tarballs

CVE-2023-5189 6.5 - Medium - November 14, 2023

A path traversal vulnerability exists in Ansible when extracting tarballs. An attacker could craft a malicious tarball so that when using the galaxy importer of Ansible Automation Hub, a symlink could be dropped on the disk, resulting in files being overwritten.

Directory traversal

The HTTP/2 protocol

CVE-2023-44487 7.5 - High - October 10, 2023

The HTTP/2 protocol allows a denial of service (server resource consumption) because request cancellation can reset many streams quickly, as exploited in the wild in August through October 2023.

Resource Exhaustion

A flaw was found in the Ansible Automation Platform

CVE-2023-4237 7.8 - High - October 04, 2023

A flaw was found in the Ansible Automation Platform. When creating a new keypair, the ec2_key module prints out the private key directly to the standard output. This flaw allows an attacker to fetch those keys from the log files, compromising the system's confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

The collection remote for pulp_ansible stores tokens in plaintext instead of using pulp's encrypted field and exposes them in read/write mode

CVE-2022-3644 5.5 - Medium - October 25, 2022

The collection remote for pulp_ansible stores tokens in plaintext instead of using pulp's encrypted field and exposes them in read/write mode via the API () instead of marking it as write only.

Insufficiently Protected Credentials

Cross site scripting in automation controller UI in Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform 1.2 and 2.0 where the project name is susceptible to XSS injection

CVE-2022-3205 6.1 - Medium - September 13, 2022

Cross site scripting in automation controller UI in Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform 1.2 and 2.0 where the project name is susceptible to XSS injection

XSS

An Improper Certificate Validation attack was found in Openshift

CVE-2022-1632 6.5 - Medium - September 01, 2022

An Improper Certificate Validation attack was found in Openshift. A re-encrypt Route with destinationCACertificate explicitly set to the default serviceCA skips internal Service TLS certificate validation. This flaw allows an attacker to exploit an invalid certificate, resulting in a loss of confidentiality.

Improper Certificate Validation

A privilege escalation flaw was found in the Ansible Automation Platform

CVE-2022-2568 6.5 - Medium - August 18, 2022

A privilege escalation flaw was found in the Ansible Automation Platform. This flaw allows a remote authenticated user with 'change user' permissions to modify the account settings of the superuser account and also remove the superuser privileges.

Improper Privilege Management

A flaw was found in Ansible Galaxy Collections

CVE-2021-3681 5.5 - Medium - April 18, 2022

A flaw was found in Ansible Galaxy Collections. When collections are built manually, any files in the repository directory that are not explicitly excluded via the ``build_ignore`` list in "galaxy.yml" include files in the ``.tar.gz`` file. This contains sensitive info, such as the user's Ansible Galaxy API key and any secrets in ``ansible`` or ``ansible-playbook`` verbose output without the``no_log`` redaction. Currently, there is no way to deprecate a Collection Or delete a Collection Version. Once published, anyone who downloads or installs the collection can view the secrets.

Insufficiently Protected Credentials

A flaw was found in Ansible, where a user's controller is vulnerable to template injection

CVE-2021-3583 7.1 - High - September 22, 2021

A flaw was found in Ansible, where a user's controller is vulnerable to template injection. This issue can occur through facts used in the template if the user is trying to put templates in multi-line YAML strings and the facts being handled do not routinely include special template characters. This flaw allows attackers to perform command injection, which discloses sensitive information. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to confidentiality and integrity.

Code Injection

A flaw was found in Ansible if an ansible user sets ANSIBLE_ASYNC_DIR to a subdirectory of a world writable directory

CVE-2021-3533 2.5 - Low - June 09, 2021

A flaw was found in Ansible if an ansible user sets ANSIBLE_ASYNC_DIR to a subdirectory of a world writable directory. When this occurs, there is a race condition on the managed machine. A malicious, non-privileged account on the remote machine can exploit the race condition to access the async result data. This flaw affects Ansible Tower 3.7 and Ansible Automation Platform 1.2.

Race Condition

A flaw was found in Ansible where the secret information present in async_files are getting disclosed when the user changes the jobdir to a world readable directory

CVE-2021-3532 5.5 - Medium - June 09, 2021

A flaw was found in Ansible where the secret information present in async_files are getting disclosed when the user changes the jobdir to a world readable directory. Any secret information in an async status file will be readable by a malicious user on that system. This flaw affects Ansible Tower 3.7 and Ansible Automation Platform 1.2.

Incorrect Permission Assignment for Critical Resource

A flaw was found in the Ansible Engine 2.9.18

CVE-2021-20228 7.5 - High - April 29, 2021

A flaw was found in the Ansible Engine 2.9.18, where sensitive info is not masked by default and is not protected by the no_log feature when using the sub-option feature of the basic.py module. This flaw allows an attacker to obtain sensitive information. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to confidentiality.
