Description Kurt Seifried 2013-02-12 03:58:07 UTC
Thierry Carrez (thierry@openstack.org) reports:

Title: Information leak and Denial of Service using XML entities
Reporter: Jonathan Murray (NCC Group), Joshua Harlow (Yahoo!), Stuart Stent
Products: Keystone, Nova, Cinder
Affects: All versions

Jonathan Murray from NCC Group, Joshua Harlow from Yahoo! and Stuart
Stent independently reported a vulnerability in the parsing of XML
requests in Keystone, Nova and Cinder. By using entities in XML
requests, an unauthenticated attacker may consume excessive resources on
the Keystone, Nova or Cinder API servers, resulting in a denial of
service and potentially a crash. This only affects servers with XML 
support enabled.

Proposed patches:
See attached patches for current development tree (Grizzly) and the
Folsom and Essex series for each of the affected projects. Unless a flaw
is discovered in them, these proposed patches will be merged to master,
stable/folsom and stable/essex branches on the public disclosure date.
