Ubuntu 12.04 LTS : horizon vulnerability (USN-1565-1)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

Thomas Biege discovered that the Horizon authentication mechanism did
not validate the next parameter. An attacker could use this to
construct a link to legitimate OpenStack web dashboard that redirected
the user to a malicious website after authentication.

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 openstack-dashboard and / or python-django-horizon
packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.8
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:N)
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.8
(CVSS2#E:F/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : true
