Ubuntu 13.04 : python-glanceclient vulnerability (USN-2004-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 70583


The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.


Thomas Leaman discovered that the Python client library for Glance did not properly verify SSL certificates. A remote attacker could exploit this to perform a man in the middle attack.

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.


Update the affected python-glanceclient package.
