Description Kurt Seifried 2013-12-06 18:50:48 UTC
Jeremy Stanley of the OpenStack Project reports:

Steven Hardy from Red Hat reported a vulnerability in Heat's default
API policy enforcement. By calling the CreateStack or UpdateStack
methods, an in-instance user may be able to create or update a stack
in violation of the default policy. Only setups using Heat's
cloudformation-compatible API are affected.
