USN-2208-1: OpenStack Cinder vulnerability

6 May 2014

OpenStack Cinder could be made to expose sensitive information over the network.



  • cinder - OpenStack storage service


JuanFra Rodriguez Cardoso discovered that OpenStack Cinder did not enforce
SSL connections when Nova was configured to use QPid and qpid_protocol is
set to 'ssl'. If a remote attacker were able to perform a machine-in-the-middle
attack, this flaw could be exploited to view sensitive information. Ubuntu
does not use QPid with Nova by default.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 12.10

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