nova vulnerability
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 12.10
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 11.10

Summary:

Nova volume could be made to expose volumes from other users.

Software Description:
- nova: OpenStack Compute cloud infrastructure

Details:

Phil Day discovered that nova-volume did not validate access to volumes. An
authenticated attacker could exploit this to bypass intended access
controls and boot from arbitrary volumes.

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 12.10:
  nova-volume
2012.2.1+stable-20121212-a99a802e-0ubuntu1.1
  python-nova
2012.2.1+stable-20121212-a99a802e-0ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
  nova-volume
2012.1.3+stable-20120827-4d2a4afe-0ubuntu1.1
  python-nova
2012.1.3+stable-20120827-4d2a4afe-0ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 11.10:
  nova-volume                     2011.3-0ubuntu6.11
  python-nova                     2011.3-0ubuntu6.11

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
