                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Moderate: openstack-glance security and bug fix update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2014:0229-01
Product:           Red Hat OpenStack
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-0229.html
Issue date:        2014-03-04
CVE Names:         CVE-2014-1948 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated openstack-glance packages that fix one security issues and multiple
bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4.0.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Moderate
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:

OpenStack 4 - noarch

3. Description:

OpenStack Image service (glance) provides discovery, registration, and
delivery services for disk and server images. It provides the ability to
copy or snapshot a server image, and immediately store it away. Stored
images can be used as a template to get new servers up and running quickly
and more consistently than installing a server operating system and
individually configuring additional services.

An information leak flaw was found in the way glance stored certain logging
information. An attacker with access to the glance log files could use this
flaw to obtain authentication credentials to the OpenStack Object Storage
(swift) back end. Note that only setups using the swift back end were
affected. (CVE-2014-1948)

The openstack-glance packages have been upgraded to upstream version
2013.2.2, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version.
(BZ#1065313)

All users of openstack-glance are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which correct these issues. After installing the updated
packages, the running OpenStack Image services must be manually restarted
(using "service [service name] restart") for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/11258

5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

1064589 - CVE-2014-1948 openstack-glance: Glance Swift store backend password leak
1065313 - Rebase openstack-glance to 2013.2.2
