USN-1565-1: OpenStack Horizon vulnerability
13 September 2012
OpenStack Horizon could help expose sensitive information.
- horizon - Web interface for OpenStack cloud infrastructure
Thomas Biege discovered that the Horizon authentication mechanism
did not validate the next parameter. An attacker could use this to
construct a link to legitimate OpenStack web dashboard that redirected
the user to a malicious website after authentication.
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:
- openstack-dashboard - 2012.1.3+stable~20120815-691dd2-0ubuntu1.1
- python-django-horizon - 2012.1.3+stable~20120815-691dd2-0ubuntu1.1
In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
