USN-2208-1: OpenStack Cinder vulnerability
6 May 2014
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
- Ubuntu 12.10
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 man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could be exploited to view sensitive information. Ubuntu does not use QPid with Nova by default.
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:
To update your system, please follow these instructions: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Security/Upgrades.
In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
