Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
A denial of service flaw was found in neutron's handling of allowed address pairs. As there was no enforced quota on the amount of allowed address pairs, a sufficiently authorized user could possibly create a large number of firewall rules, impacting performance or potentially rendering a compute node unusable.

Description Vasyl Kaigorodov 2014-07-11 15:58:00 UTC
The OpenStack project reports:

Title: Denial of Service in Neutron allowed address pair
Reporter: Liping Mao (Cisco)
Products: Neutron
Versions: up to 2013.2.3, and 2014.1 versions up to 2014.1.1

Description:
Liping Mao from Cisco reported a denial of service vulnerability in
Neutron's handling of allowed address pair. By creating a large number
of allowed address pairs, an authenticated user may overwhelm neutron
firewall rules and render compute nodes unusable. All Neutron setups are
affected.
