Description Murray McAllister 2014-02-10 06:28:55 UTC
The OpenStack project reports:

Title: Routers can be cross plugged by other tenants
Reporter: Aaron Rosen (VMWare)
Products: Neutron
Affects: 2012.2 versions up to 2013.2.2

Aaron Rosen from VMWare reported a vulnerability where Neutron fails to
perform proper authorization checks when creating ports. By choosing a
device id of a router from a different tenant when creating a port, an
authenticated user can access the network of other tenants. This affects
deployments of Neutron using plugins relying on the l3-agent.
