Description Garth Mollett 2013-12-10 04:18:12 UTC
Kashyap Chamarthy <kchamart> reports:

It's possible for Neutron (OpenStack networking) users to pass arbitrary
config files via rootwrap[*] which allows privilege escalation
by letting user add more exec directories, change configurations of
commands using rootwrap, log more than what needs to be done, etc.
