glance vulnerability

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

- Ubuntu 13.10


OpenStack Glance could be made to run programs as the glance user if it
processed a specially crafted request.

Software Description:

Paul McMillan discovered that the Sheepdog backend in OpenStack Glance did
not properly handle untrusted input. A remote authenticated attacker
exploit this to execute arbitrary commands as the glance user.

package versions:
