Ubuntu 11.10 : nova vulnerability (USN-1326-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Nachi Ueno, Rohit Karajgi, and Venkatesan Ravikumar discovered that
when Nova is configured to use the OpenStack API, it would not
correctly enforce access controls on certain incoming requests. A
remote authenticated attacker could exploit this to change resources
of arbitrary tenants.

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.

Solution :

Update the affected nova-api package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.9
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:N/I:P/A:P)
