Ubuntu 14.04 LTS : cinder vulnerabilities (USN-2405-1)

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 :

Duncan Thomas discovered that OpenStack Cinder did not properly track
the file format when using the GlusterFS of Smbfs drivers. A remote
authenticated user could exploit this to potentially obtain file
contents from the compute host. (CVE-2014-3641)

Amrith Kumar discovered that OpenStack Cinder did not properly
sanitize log message contents. Under certain circumstances, a local
attacker with read access to Cinder log files could obtain access to
sensitive information. (CVE-2014-7230).

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.
