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.
