Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : nova (multiple_vulnerabilities_in_nova)

Synopsis :

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party
software.

Description :

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address
security updates :

- The VMWare driver in OpenStack Compute (Nova) 2013.2
through 2013.2.2 does not properly put VMs into RESCUE
status, which allows remote authenticated users to
bypass the quota limit and cause a denial of service
(resource consumption) by requesting the VM be put into
rescue and then deleting the image. (CVE-2014-2573)

- The VMWare driver in OpenStack Compute (Nova) before
2014.1.3 allows remote authenticated users to bypass the
quota limit and cause a denial of service (resource
consumption) by putting the VM into the rescue state,
suspending it, which puts into an ERROR state, and then
deleting the image. NOTE: this vulnerability exists
because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2014-2573.
(CVE-2014-3608)
