Ubuntu 13.04 : python-keystoneclient vulnerability (USN-1851-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2013-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2013-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Eoghan Glynn and Alex Meade discovered that python-keystoneclient did
not properly perform expiry checks for the PKI tokens used in
Keystone. If Keystone were setup to use PKI tokens (the default in
Ubuntu 13.04), a previously authenticated user could continue to use a
PKI token for longer than intended.

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 python-keystoneclient package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:S/C:N/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.8
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : true
