Description Murray McAllister 2014-09-16 02:41:31 UTC
The OpenStack project reports:

""
Title: Admin-only network attributes may be reset to defaults by
non-privileged users
Reporter: Elena Ezhova (Mirantis)
Products: Neutron
Versions: up to 2013.2.4 and 2014.1 versions up to 2014.1.2

Description:
Elena Ezhova from Mirantis reported a vulnerability in Neutron. By updating
a network attribute with a default value a non-privileged user may reset
admin-only network attributes. This may lead to unexpected behavior with
security implications for operators with a custom policy.json, or in some
extreme cases network outages resulting in denial of service. All
deployments using neutron networking are affected by this flaw.

Comment 3 Murray McAllister 2014-09-16 02:43:17 UTC
Created openstack-neutron tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-20 [bug 1142013]

Comment 6 Ihar Hrachyshka 2014-09-26 08:13:02 UTC
I've already backported the fix to RDO Havana, so there should be no issues with that. So please create trackers. Also, the earlier we handle the issue, the better.
