March 14, 2013

glance vulnerability

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

- Ubuntu 12.10
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS


Glance could be made to expose sensitive information over the network.

Software Description:
- glance: OpenStack Image Registry and Delivery Service


Stuart McLaren discovered an issue with Glance v1 API requests. An
authenticated attacker could exploit this to expose the Glance operator's
Swift and/or S3 credentials via the response headers when requesting a
cached image.

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

Ubuntu 12.10:
  python-glance                   2012.2.1-0ubuntu1.2
