Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
David Black discovered that Nova did not properly perform input
validation during image registration. An attacker could exploit this
by registering a crafted image using the EC2 API or S3/RegisterImage
method and overwrite files as the nova user.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected python-nova package.
