Thierry Carrez <thierry@openstack.org> reports:

Pádraig Brady (Red Hat) Products: Nova Affects: All versions

Upon further inspection of the code, Pádraig Brady from Red Hat
found an additional vulnerability. By crafting a malicious image
and requesting an instance based on it, a remote authenticated user
may corrupt arbitrary files on the host filesystem, potentially
resulting in a denial of service. This affects all setups.
