Ubuntu 14.04 LTS : cinder vulnerabilities (USN-2405-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 79211
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionDuncan Thomas discovered that OpenStack Cinder did not properly track the file format when using the GlusterFS of Smbfs drivers. A remote authenticated user could exploit this to potentially obtain file contents from the compute host. (CVE-2014-3641)
Amrith Kumar discovered that OpenStack Cinder did not properly sanitize log message contents. Under certain circumstances, a local attacker with read access to Cinder log files could obtain access to sensitive information. (CVE-2014-7230).
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-cinder package.
