Synopsis :

requests for a large number of allowed address pairs. A remote
authenticated attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of
service. (CVE-2014-3555)

Zhi Kun Liu discovered that OpenStack Neutron incorrectly filtered
certain tokens. An attacker could possibly use this issue to obtain
authentication tokens used in REST requests. (CVE-2014-4615).

has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
