========================================================================== Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2208-2 May 06, 2014

quantum vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

  • Ubuntu 12.10


OpenStack Quantum could be made to expose sensitive information over the network.

Software Description: - quantum: OpenStack Virtual Network Service


USN-2208-1 fixed vulnerabilities in OpenStack Cinder. This update provides the corresponding updates for OpenStack Quantum.

Original advisory details:

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.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 12.10: python-quantum 2012.2.4-0ubuntu1.1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
