Ubuntu 14.04 LTS : neutron vulnerability (USN-2408-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 79214
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionElena Ezhova discovered that OpenStack Neutron did not properly perform access control checks for attributes. A remote authenticated attacker could exploit this to bypass intended access controls and reset admin-only attributes to default values.
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.
