Debian DLA-3302-1 : nova - LTS security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 170883


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


The remote Debian 10 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the dla-3302 advisory.

- An issue was discovered in OpenStack Cinder before 19.1.2, 20.x before 20.0.2, and 21.0.0; Glance before 23.0.1, 24.x before 24.1.1, and 25.0.0; and Nova before 24.1.2, 25.x before 25.0.2, and 26.0.0. By supplying a specially created VMDK flat image that references a specific backing file path, an authenticated user may convince systems to return a copy of that file's contents from the server, resulting in unauthorized access to potentially sensitive data. (CVE-2022-47951)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade the nova packages.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version 2
