Details

Garth Mollett discovered that OpenStack Nova did not properly clean up an
instance when using rescue mode with the VMWare driver. A remove
authenticated user could exploit this to bypass intended quota limits. By
default, Ubuntu does not use the VMWare driver. (CVE-2014-3608)

Amrith Kumar discovered that OpenStack Nova did not properly sanitize log
message contents. Under certain circumstances, a local attacker with read
access to Nova log files could obtain access to sensitive information.
