Description Kurt Seifried 2013-02-26 02:28:20 EST
Russell Bryant (rbryant@redhat.com) reports:

Title: VNC proxy can connect to the wrong VM
CVE: CVE-2013-0335
Reporter: Loganathan Parthipan (HP), Rohit Karajgi (NTT Data)
Products: Nova
Affects: All versions

Loganathan Parthipan (HP) and Rohit Karajgi (NTT Data) independently
reported a vulnerability in Nova. If a user requests a console and
then deletes the VM, it is possible that the console token could allow
connectivity to a different VM before the console token expires if the
VNC port gets reused in that time period. This issue can be worked
around by disabling VNC support.
