Description Sam James archtester gentoo-dev Security 2020-04-23 02:34:36 UTC
"An issue was discovered in Ceph through 13.2.9. A POST request with an invalid tagging XML can crash the RGW process by triggering a NULL pointer exception."

@maintainer(s), can you clarify if versions in tree are affected?
Comment 1 John Helmert III gentoo-dev Security 2020-07-04 19:38:15 UTC
Upstream issue says Nautilus+ (>=14.x?) is unaffected.
Comment 2 John Helmert III gentoo-dev Security 2020-12-20 07:44:45 UTC
If 12.x was affected, then cleanup was done here:

    sys-cluster/ceph: remove old

 delete mode 100644 sys-cluster/ceph/ceph-12.2.12-r3.ebuild

Since 14.x is unaffected, the earliest 14.x version we had looks to be 14.2.0 so that will go in summary. Needs GLSA vote.
