CVE-2012-1585 openstack-nova: Long server names grow nova-api log files significantly
Last modified: 2015-08-19 05:15:32 EDT
Dan Prince reported a vulnerability in OpenStack Compute (Nova) API servers. By PUTing or POSTing extremely long server names to the OpenStack API, any authenticated user may grow nova-api log files significantly, potentially resulting in disk space exhaustion and denial of service to the affected nova-api nodes. Only setups running the OpenStack API are affected.
