Description

OpenStack Database (trove) is Database as a Service for Openstack. It runs entirely on OpenStack, with the goal of allowing users to quickly and easily utilize the features of a database without the burden of handling complex administrative tasks. Cloud users and database administrators can provision and manage multiple database instances as needed.

It was found that the processutils.execute() and strutils.mask_password() functions did not correctly sanitize the authentication details from their output before storing them in log files. This could allow an attacker with read access to these log files to obtain sensitive information such as passwords. (CVE-2014-7230, CVE-2014-7231)

The openstack-trove packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2014.1.3, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#1149745)

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