Ubuntu 13.10 : neutron vulnerability (USN-2194-1)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 73884
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionAaron Rosen discovered that OpenStack Neutron did not properly perform authorization checks when creating ports when using plugins relying on the l3-agent. A remote authenticated attacker could exploit this to access the network of other tenants.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected python-neutron package.
