Ubuntu 13.10 : neutron vulnerability (USN-2194-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2014-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2014-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Aaron Rosen discovered that OpenStack Neutron did not properly perform
authorization checks when creating ports when using plugins relying on
the l3-agent. A remote authenticated attacker could exploit this to
access the network of other 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 python-neutron package.
