20 December 2013

Horizon could be made to expose sensitive information over the network.



  • horizon - Web interface for OpenStack cloud infrastructure


Chris Chapman discovered cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities
in Horizon via the Volumes and Network Topology pages. An authenticated
attacker could exploit these to conduct stored cross-site scripting (XSS)
attacks against users viewing these pages in order to modify the contents
or steal confidential data within the same domain.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 13.10
Ubuntu 13.04
Ubuntu 12.10

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