Title: Nova fails to verify image virtual size
Reporter: Loganathan Parthipan
Products: Nova
Affects: All versions

Loganathan Parthipan publicly reported a vulnerability in Nova. Nova
did not implement checking for the virtual size of a qcow2 image used
as ephemeral storage for instances. It is therefore possible for a
user to create an image which has a large virtual size, but little
data. Once the instance is created, the user can then proceed to fill
the virtual disk, and consume all available disk on the host node file
system.
