Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
A race-condition flaw leading to ACL bypass was discovered in OpenStack Networking (neutron). An authenticated user could change the owner of a port after it was created but before firewall rules were applied, thus preventing firewall control checks from occurring. All OpenStack Networking deployments that used either the ML2 plug-in or a plug-in that relied on the security groups AMQP API were affected.

Description Adam Mariš 2015-08-31 12:43:01 UTC
It was reported that a vulnerability was found in Neutron.

All Neutron setups using the ML2 plugin or a plugin that relies on the security groups AMQP API are affected. All Neutron setups using the ML2 plugin or a plugin that relies on the security groups AMQP API are affected.
