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 :

Elena Ezhova discovered that OpenStack Neutron did not properly
perform access control checks for attributes. A remote authenticated
attacker could exploit this to bypass intended access controls and
reset admin-only attributes to default values.

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.
