Red Hat CloudForms Management Engine delivers the insight, control, and
automation needed to address the challenges of managing virtual
environments. CloudForms Management Engine is built on Ruby on Rails, a
model-view-controller (MVC) framework for web application development.
Action Pack implements the controller and the view components.

It was found that CloudForms Management Engine exposed SQL filters via the
REST API without any input escaping. An authenticated user could use this
flaw to perform SQL injection attacks against the CloudForms Management
Engine database. (CVE-2014-7814)

It was found that the CloudForms Management Engine customization template
used a default root password for newly created images if no root password
was specified. (CVE-2014-3692)

These issues were discovered by the Red Hat CloudForms Team.

This update also fixes several bugs and adds various enhancements.
