Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Official Statement from Red Hat (08/04/2009)

Red Hat does not consider this to be a security issue. The misbehaviour of CMAN is triggered by corrupted / specially crafted cluster.conf configuration file. Ability to edit this file is restricted to system administrator, therefore no privilege boundary is crossed.
