Description Kurt Seifried 2013-02-07 04:37:30 UTC
Derek Higgins (derekh) reports:

puppetlabs-cinder / manifests / base.pp as used in OpenStack packstack uses
unsafe file permissions (mode 0644) for various config files (cinder.conf and
api-paste.ini) which can result in authorization credentials being exposed to 
local attackers.

External references:
mode    => '0644',

Comment 4 Derek Higgins 2013-02-08 13:20:15 UTC
This covers cinder.conf but I think api-paste.ini should also be included. It contains the cinder auth credentials for keystone.

Comment 5 Murray McAllister 2013-02-24 21:49:35 UTC
