cinder vulnerability
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 12.10

Summary:

OpenStack Cinder could be made to expose sensitive information over the
network.

Software Description:
- cinder: OpenStack storage service

Details:

JuanFra Rodriguez Cardoso discovered that OpenStack Cinder did not enforce
SSL connections when Nova was configured to use QPid and qpid_protocol is
set to 'ssl'. If a remote attacker were able to perform a man-in-the-middle
attack, this flaw could be exploited to view sensitive information. Ubuntu
does not use QPid with Nova by default.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 12.10:
  python-cinder                   2012.2.4-0ubuntu1.1

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