Description Russell Bryant 2012-03-29 17:18:08 UTC
Dan Prince reported a vulnerability in OpenStack Compute (Nova) API servers. By PUTing or POSTing extremely long server names to the OpenStack API, any authenticated user may grow nova-api log files significantly, potentially resulting in disk space exhaustion and denial of service to the affected nova-api nodes. Only setups running the OpenStack API are affected.
