Description Vasyl Kaigorodov 2015-08-11 09:36:18 UTC
Title: Glance v2 API host file disclosure through qcow2 backing file
Reporter: Eric Harney (Red Hat)
Products: Glance
Affects: 2015.1.0 versions through 2015.1.1

Eric Harney from Red Hat reported a vulnerability in Glance. By
importing a qcow2 image with a malicious backing file, an authenticated
user may mislead Glance import task action, resulting in the disclosure
of any file on the Glance server for which the Glance process user has
access to. Only setups using the Glance V2 API are affected by this flaw.

Proposed patch:
See attached patches. Unless a flaw is discovered in them, these patches
will be merged to stable/kilo and master on the public disclosure date.
