1. Summary:

Updated ruby193-v8 packages that fix one security issue are now available
for Red Hat OpenStack 3.0.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

3. Description:

V8 is Google's open source JavaScript engine.

A type confusion issue was found in the V8 JavaScript engine. An attacker
could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2013-2882)

Note: Exploitation of this issue requires, at the least, execution of
malicious JavaScript. In the standard use case of ruby193-v8 in Red Hat
OpenStack it is unlikely that a scenario exists where this would occur.

Users of ruby193-v8 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which correct this issue.
