This is a security release.
A security-check flaw was found in the way the Heketi server API handled user requests. An authenticated Heketi user could send specially crafted requests to the Heketi server, resulting in remote command execution as the user running Heketi server and possibly privilege escalation. (CVE-2017-15103)
The flaw was discovered by Markus Krell of NTT Security and fixed by Raghavendra Talur of Red Hat.
- Fix the security flaw by adding complete input validation to the API server
