2. Description:

Red Hat OpenShift Data Foundation is software-defined storage integrated
with and optimized for the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. Red Hat

storage for stateful applications running in the Red Hat OpenShift
Container Platform. In addition to persistent storage, Red Hat OpenShift
Data Foundation provisions a multicloud data management service with an S3
compatible API.

Security Fix(es):

* openshift: OCP & FIPS mode (CVE-2023-3089)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE
page(s) listed in the References section.

Bug Fix(es):

* Previously, OpenShift Data Foundation was not setting up the correct user
interface (UI) plugin version in its generated `plugin-manifest.json`
during the upgrades. This resulted in OpenShift Data Foundation not showing
up the refresh pop-up because it could not detect the change in version.
With this fix, the correct plugin version is set up to enable OpenShift
Container Platform console to detect upgrades and trigger the refresh
pop-up dialog box. As a result, a refresh pop-up shows up and when clicked,
it loads the new UI content for the upgraded OpenShift Data Foundation.

* Previously, in MultiCloud Object Gateway (MCG), there was a significant
degradation in performance with read and write operations of small objects.
The degradation was because the Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) between the
MCG endpoint and the core that were required to be cached missed the cache
each time causing an RPC message between the endpoint and the core per each
With this fix, the lookup in cache is fixed so that the existing data is
found and not queried at each operation. (BZ#2215978)

* Previously, there were repeated crashes of the MultiCloud Object Gateway
(MCG) Operator because the operator collided with the updates to the
structure when it was trying to print a debug message regarding an internal
structure in the MCG Operator.
With this release, the print is fixed so that there are no collisions,
thereby avoiding the repeated crashes fo MCG Operator. (BZ#2216402)

All users of Red Hat OpenShift Data Foundation are advised to upgrade to
these updated images, which provide these bug fixes.
