Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1326-1
January 11, 2012

nova vulnerability

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

- Ubuntu 11.10


Nova would allow unintended access to resources over the network.

Software Description:
- nova: OpenStack Compute cloud infrastructure


Nachi Ueno, Rohit Karajgi, and Venkatesan Ravikumar discovered that when
Nova is configured to use the OpenStack API, it would not correctly enforce
access controls on certain incoming requests. A remote authenticated
attacker could exploit this to change resources of arbitrary tenants.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 11.10:
  nova-api                        2011.3-0ubuntu6.4

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