Cinder and os-brick could be made to expose sensitive information.



  • cinder - OpenStack storage service
  • python-os-brick - Library for managing local volume attaches - Python 2.x


David Hill and Eric Harney discovered that Cinder and os-brick incorrectly
handled ScaleIO backend credentials. An attacker could possibly use this issue to
expose sensitive information.
