Fedora 19 : openstack-swift-1.8.0-3.fc19 (2013-14477)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 69387


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes the possibility to fill up a Swift fluster with invalid tombstone files by attacking with DELETE requests with a special timestamp.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected openstack-swift package.
