Security Bulletin: OpenStack vulnerabilities affect IBM SmartCloud Entry(CVE-2015-7548, CVE-2015-8749 CVE-2015-1850)

Description

## Summary IBM SmartClound Entry is vulnerable to several Openstack Nova vulerabilities, which could allow a local authenticated attacker or a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information ## Vulnerability Details **CVEID:** [_CVE-2015-8749_](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2015-8749>)** DESCRIPTION:** OpenStack Nova could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a Xen connection password leak when attempting to connect a volume using the Xen API. An attacker with access to logs could exploit this vulnerability using StorageError to obtain the password and other sensitive information. CVSS Base Score: 4.3 CVSS Temporal Score: See [_https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/109585_](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/109585>) for the current score CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N) **CVEID:** [_CVE-2015-7548_](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2015-7548>)** DESCRIPTION:** OpenStack Nova could allow a local authenticated attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by an error in instance snapshot. By overwriting the disk inside an instance using a malformed image and requesting a snapshot, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to read arbitrary files from the host. CVSS Base Score: 5.5 CVSS Temporal Score: See [_https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/109474_](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/109474>) for the current score CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N) **CVEID:** [_CVE-2015-1850_](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2015-1850>)** DESCRIPTION:** OpenStack Nova could allow a local attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by the failure to provide input format to several calls of "qemu-img convert". By overwriting an image convert using a qcow2 backing file, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to read arbitrary files from the host. CVSS Base Score: 4.9 CVSS Temporal Score: See [_https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/103849_](<https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/103849>) for the current score CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined CVSS Vector: (AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:N/A:N) ## Affected Products and Versions IBM SmartCloud Entry 3.2 through Appliance fix pack 20 IBM SmartCloud Entry 3.1 through Appliance fix pack 20 ## Remediation/Fixes Product| VRMF| APAR| Remediation/First Fix ---|---|---|--- IBM SmartCloud Entry| 3.1| None| IBM SmartCloud Entry 3.1 Appliance fix pack 21: [https://www-945.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/swg/selectFixes?product=ibm%2FOther+software%2FIBM+SmartCloud+Entry&fixids=3.1.0.4-IBM-SCE_APPL-FP21&source=SAR&function=fixId&parent=ibm/Other%20software](<https://www-945.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/swg/selectFixes?product=ibm%2FOther+software%2FIBM+SmartCloud+Entry&fixids=3.1.0.4-IBM-SCE_APPL-FP21&source=SAR&function=fixId&parent=ibm/Other%20software>) IBM SmartCloud Entry| 3.2| None| IBM SmartCloud Entry 3.2 Appliance fix pack 21: [https://www-945.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/swg/selectFixes?product=ibm%2FOther+software%2FIBM+SmartCloud+Entry&fixids=3.2.0.4-IBM-SCE_APPL-FP21&source=SAR&function=fixId&parent=ibm/Other%20software](<https://www-945.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/swg/selectFixes?product=ibm%2FOther+software%2FIBM+SmartCloud+Entry&fixids=3.2.0.4-IBM-SCE_APPL-FP21&source=SAR&function=fixId&parent=ibm/Other%20software>) ## Workarounds and Mitigations None ## Get Notified about Future Security Bulletins Subscribe to [My Notifications](< http://www-01.ibm.com/software/support/einfo.html>) to be notified of important product support alerts like this. ### References [Complete CVSS v2 Guide](<http://www.first.org/cvss/v2/guide> "Link resides outside of ibm.com" ) [On-line Calculator v2](<http://nvd.nist.gov/CVSS-v2-Calculator> "Link resides outside of ibm.com" ) [Complete CVSS v3 Guide](<http://www.first.org/cvss/user-guide> "Link resides outside of ibm.com" ) [On-line Calculator v3](<http://www.first.org/cvss/calculator/3.0> "Link resides outside of ibm.com" ) Off ## Related Information [IBM Secure Engineering Web Portal](<http://www.ibm.com/security/secure-engineering/bulletins.html>) [IBM Product Security Incident Response Blog](<http://www.ibm.com/blogs/psirt>) [Subscribe to Security Bulletins](<http://www.ibm.com/support/mynotifications/>) ## Acknowledgement None ## Change History 04 August, 2016: Original version submitted for review *The CVSS Environment Score is customer environment specific and will ultimately impact the Overall CVSS Score.
