Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Low: sblim-cim-client2 security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2012:0987-04
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-0987.html

================================================== ===================

1. Summary:

Updated sblim-cim-client2 packages that fix one security issue are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6) - noarch
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional (v. 6) - noarch
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6) - noarch
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation Optional (v. 6) - noarch

3. Description:

The SBLIM (Standards-Based Linux Instrumentation for Manageability) CIM
(Common Information Model) Client is a class library for Java applications
that provides access to CIM servers using the CIM Operations over HTTP
protocol defined by the DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) standards.

It was found that the Java HashMap implementation was susceptible to
predictable hash collisions. SBLIM uses HashMap when parsing XML inputs. A
specially-crafted CIM-XML message from a WBEM (Web-Based Enterprise
Management) server could cause a SBLIM client to use an excessive amount of
CPU. Randomization has been added to help avoid collisions. (CVE-2012-2328)

All users of sblim-cim-client2 are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.

4. Solution:
