Description Kurt Seifried 2012-11-06 06:08:32 UTC
Within the OpenStack Quantum package (specifically openstack-quantum) the 
file Within the OpenStack dashboard package (specifically openstack-dashboard) the 
file /etc/quantum/quantum.conf is world readable and contains:

===
[filter:authN]
...
auth_admin_user = admin
auth_admin_password = secrete
#auth_admin_token = <token-value>
===

This file should be mode 0600.

Quantum config files are all
%config(noreplace) %attr(0640, root, quantum)
in 2012.2 (Folsom) so this only affects RHOS Essex Preview.
How urgent is to push this update to Essex Preview, when it is going public?
