Ubuntu 13.04 : cinder vulnerabilities (USN-2005-1)

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 :

Rongze Zhu discovered that the Cinder LVM driver did not zero out data
when deleting snapshots. This could expose sensitive information to
authenticated users when subsequent servers use the volume.

Grant Murphy discovered that Cinder would allow XML entity processing.
A remote unauthenticated attacker could exploit this using the Cinder
API to cause a denial of service via resource exhaustion.
(CVE-2013-4179, CVE-2013-4202).

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-cinder package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score : 3.7
Public Exploit Available : true
