Details

Nachi Ueno, Rohit Karajgi, and Venkatesan Ravikumar discovered that when
Nova is configured to use the OpenStack API, it would not correctly enforce
access controls on certain incoming requests. A remote authenticated
attacker could exploit this to change resources of arbitrary tenants.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 11.10

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
