Description

OpenStack Networking (neutron) is a pluggable, scalable, and API-driven system that provisions networking services to virtual machines. Its main function is to manage connectivity to and from virtual machines. As of Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4.0, 'neutron' replaces 'quantum' as the core component of OpenStack Networking.

It was discovered that unprivileged users could in some cases reset admin-only network attributes to their default values. This could lead to unexpected behavior or in some cases result in a denial of service. (CVE-2014-6414)

The openstack-neutron packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2014.1.3, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#1149753)

All openstack-neutron users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues and add these enhancements.
