========================================================================== Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2208-2 May 06, 2014
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
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.
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.
