11 November 2014

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

Releases

Packages

  • cinder - OpenStack storage service

Details

Duncan Thomas discovered that OpenStack Cinder did not properly track the
file format when using the GlusterFS of Smbfs drivers. A remote
authenticated user could exploit this to potentially obtain file contents
from the compute host. (CVE-2014-3641)

Amrith Kumar discovered that OpenStack Cinder did not properly sanitize log
message contents. Under certain circumstances, a local attacker with read
access to Cinder log files could obtain access to sensitive information.
(CVE-2014-7230)

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 14.04

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