2. Description:

Red Hat OpenShift Data Foundation is software-defined storage integrated
with and optimized for the Red Hat OpenShift Data Foundation. Red Hat
OpenShift Data Foundation is a highly scalable, production-grade persistent
storage for stateful applications running in the Red Hat OpenShift
Container Platform. In addition to persistent storage, Red Hat OpenShift
Data Foundation provisions a multi-cloud 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 Fixes:

* Previously, an empty screen was seen for the topology view of the
external mode because in external mode, the nodes are not labelled with the
OCS label and hence, the topology view did not show the nodes at the first

With this fix, the topology view is disabled for the external mode clusters
and as a result, the confusing empty screen is not displayed. (BZ#2213739)

* 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#2215976)

* 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 of the MCG Operator. (BZ#2216401)

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