keystone vulnerabilities

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

- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS


Two security issues were fixed in OpenStack Keystone.

Software Description:
- keystone: OpenStack identity service


Dolph Mathews discovered that OpenStack Keystone did not properly
restrict to administrative users the ability to update users'
tenants. A remote attacker that can reach the administrative API can
use this to add any user to any tenant. (CVE-2012-3542)

Derek Higgins discovered that OpenStack Keystone did not properly
implement token expiration. A remote attacker could use this to
continue to access an account that has been disabled or has a changed
password. (CVE-2012-3426)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
  keystone                        2012.1+stable~20120824-a16a0ab9-0ubuntu2.1
  python-keystone                 2012.1+stable~20120824-a16a0ab9-0ubuntu2.1

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

  CVE-2012-3426, CVE-2012-3542
