6 June 2019

This is an update for the Control Panel server and Static compute resources. This document provides information on improvements and fixes implemented as a part of the 6.0.0-196 update, as well as the upgrade instructions for:

OnApp 6.0.0-196 provides a resolution to a vulnerability which could be exploited in some OnApp transactions and under certain conditions allow an attacker to run arbitrary commands with root privileges on other Xen or KVM virtual servers within the same OnApp cloud.

On this page:


The following improvements were implemented in the scope of the 6.0.0-196 update.

Patch Installation

The instructions below are relevant if you already run OnApp 6.0.

Upgrade Control Panel Server

To apply the patch to a Control Panel server based on OnApp 6.0:

  1. Upgrade the OnApp Control Panel installer package:

    # yum update onapp-cp-install
  2. Run the Control Panel installer:

    # /onapp/onapp-cp-install/onapp-cp-install.sh --quick-update='monit rabbitmq'

Upgrade Static Compute Resources

Make sure your compute resource is visible and online on the Control Panel. Then you can proceed to the following procedure and run the steps, depending on a version from which you upgrade. 

If you upgrade from OnApp =< 6.0.0-62, run the following steps (1-3). 

  1. If you have CentOS 7 Xen resources, remove the centos-release-xen-46 package: 

    # rpm -e centos-release-xen-46
  2. Upgrade the OnApp compute resource installer package:

    # yum update onapp-hv-install
  3. Run Static compute resource installer:

    • For KVM compute resources

      # /onapp/onapp-hv-install/onapp-hv-kvm-install.sh
    • For Xen compute resources

      # /onapp/onapp-hv-install/onapp-hv-xen-install.sh

      Please confirm the download of Recovery Templates and other ISOs/images when you are prompted. 

Upgrade Static Backup Server

If you upgrade from OnApp =< 6.0.0-62, follow the next procedure to upgrade static backup server. 

  1. Upgrade the OnApp backup server installer package:

    # yum update onapp-bk-install
  2. Update tar on CentOS 6 backup servers: 

    # yum update tar
  3. Run the installer:

    # sh /onapp/onapp-bk-install/onapp-bk-install.sh
