Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2194-1
May 05, 2014

neutron vulnerability

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

- Ubuntu 13.10


OpenStack Neutron would allow unintended access to other tenant networks.

Software Description:
- neutron: Openstack Virtual Network Service


Aaron Rosen discovered that OpenStack Neutron did not properly perform
authorization checks when creating ports when using plugins relying on the
l3-agent. A remote authenticated attacker could exploit this to access the
network of other tenants.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 13.10:
  python-neutron                  1:2013.2.3-0ubuntu1.1

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