Doc Type: Bug Fix

A storage quota bypass flaw was found in OpenStack Image (glance). If an image was deleted while it was being uploaded, it would not count towards a user's quota. A malicious user could use this flaw to deliberately fill the backing store, and cause a denial of service.

Description Vasyl Kaigorodov 2015-01-19 11:49:10 UTC
Title: Glance user storage quota bypass
Reporter: Tushar Patil (NTT)
Products: Glance
Versions: up to 2014.1.3 and 2014.2 version up to 2014.2.1

Description:
Tushar Patil from NTT reported a vulnerability in Glance. By deleting images
that are being uploaded, a malicious user can overcome the storage quota and
thus may overrun the backend. Images in deleted state are not taken into
account by quota and won't be effectively deleted until the upload is
completed. Only Glance setups configured with user_storage_quota are
affected.
