CVE-2014-0105

Published: 15 April 2014

The auth_token middleware in the OpenStack Python client library for Keystone (aka python-keystoneclient) before 0.7.0 does not properly retrieve user tokens from memcache, which allows remote authenticated users to gain privileges in opportunistic circumstances via a large number of requests, related to an "interaction between eventlet and python-memcached."

Notes

AuthorNote

According to upstream, this is difficult to reliably attack since it
is dependent on server interactions
code present in keystone in Essex and Folsom, python-keystoneclient
in Grizzly and higher

Priority

Low
