Description Kristian Fiskerstrand (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-09-15 16:12:36 UTC
From ${URL}:

A vulnerability was discovered in OpenStack (see below). In order to
ensure full traceability, we need a CVE number assigned that we can
attach to further notifications. This issue is already public, although an
advisory was not sent yet.

Title: Admin-only network attributes may be reset to defaults by
non-privileged users
Reporter: Elena Ezhova (Mirantis)
Products: Neutron
Versions: up to 2013.2.4 and 2014.1 versions up to 2014.1.2

Description:
Elena Ezhova from Mirantis reported a vulnerability in Neutron. By updating
a network attribute with a default value a non-privileged user may reset
admin-only network attributes. This may lead to unexpected behavior with
security implications for operators with a custom policy.json, or in some
extreme cases network outages resulting in denial of service. All
deployments using neutron networking are affected by this flaw.

  OpenStack Neutron before 2014.2.4 and 2014.1 before 2014.1.2 allows remote

  unspecified vectors.
Comment 2 Matthew Thode ( prometheanfire ) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2015-01-13 04:04:17 UTC
vulnerable versions removed from tree, also, the CVE description is wrong.

OpenStack Neutron before 2014.2.4
should be
OpenStack Neutron before 2013.2.4
Comment 3 Aaron Bauman Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2016-03-29 08:15:58 UTC
Per previous comments no vulnerable versions in tree.
