RHSA-2014:1685 - Security Advisory
Moderate: openstack-glance security and bug fix update
Security Advisory: Moderate
Updated openstack-glance packages that fix one security issue and several
bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4.0.
Red Hat Product Security 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
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.
It was discovered that the image_size_cap configuration option in glance
was not honored. An authenticated user could use this flaw to upload an
image to glance and consume all available storage space, resulting in a
denial of service. (CVE-2014-5356)
The openstack-glance packages have been upgraded to upstream version
2013.2.4, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version.
All openstack-glance users are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which correct these issues. After installing the updated
packages, the running glance services will be restarted automatically.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
