Description

Jason Dunsmore discovered that OpenStack heat did not properly restrict access to template information. A remote authenticated attacker could exploit this to see URL provider templates of other tenants for a limited time.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
