Jaroslav Henner ( reports:

When console-log is run often enough, it seems to be causing death of nova-compute.

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please say explicitly if it is ready for the stabilization or not.

CVE-2013-4261 (
  OpenStack Compute (Nova) Folsom, Grizzly, and earlier, when using Apache
  Qpid for the RPC backend, does not properly handle errors that occur during
  messaging, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
  (connection pool consumption), as demonstrated using multiple requests that
  send long strings to an instance console and retrieving the console log.
