nova vulnerabilities

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

  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS


OpenStack Nova could be made to expose sensitive information.

Software Description: - nova: OpenStack Compute cloud infrastructure


Garth Mollett discovered that OpenStack Nova did not properly clean up an instance when using rescue mode with the VMWare driver. A remove authenticated user could exploit this to bypass intended quota limits. By default, Ubuntu does not use the VMWare driver. (CVE-2014-3608)

Amrith Kumar discovered that OpenStack Nova did not properly sanitize log message contents. Under certain circumstances, a local attacker with read access to Nova log files could obtain access to sensitive information. (CVE-2014-7230)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS: python-nova 1:2014.1.3-0ubuntu1.1

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