Cristian Fiorentino discovered that OpenStack Horizon did not properly
perform input sanitization for Heat templates. If a user were tricked into
using a specially crafted Heat template, an attacker could conduct
cross-site scripting attacks. With cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, if
a user were tricked into viewing server output during a crafted server
request, a remote attacker could exploit this to modify the contents, or
steal confidential data, within the same domain.
