Red Hat Security Advisory

 

Synopsis: Moderate: openstack-swift security update

Advisory ID: RHSA-2014:0232-01

Product: Red Hat OpenStack

Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-0232.html

Issue date: 2014-03-04

CVE Names: CVE-2014-0006

=====================================================================

 

1. Summary:

 

Updated openstack-swift packages that fix one security issue are now

available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4.0.

 

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Moderate

security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,

which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in

the References section.

 

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

 

OpenStack 4 - noarch

 

3. Description:

 

OpenStack Object Storage (swift) provides object storage in virtual

containers, which allows users to store and retrieve files (arbitrary

data). The service's distributed architecture supports horizontal scaling;

redundancy as failure-proofing is provided through software-based data

replication. Because Object Storage supports asynchronous eventual

consistency replication, it is well suited to multiple data-center

deployment.

 

A timing attack flaw was found in the way the swift TempURL middleware

responded to arbitrary TempURL requests. An attacker with knowledge of an

object's name could use this flaw to obtain a secret URL to this object,

which was intended to be publicly shared only with specific recipients, if

the object had the TempURL key set. Note that only setups using the TempURL

middleware were affected. (CVE-2014-0006)

 

Red Hat would like to thank the Openstack Project for reporting this issue.

Upstream acknowledges Samuel Merritt of SwiftStack as the original

reporter.

 

All users of openstack-swift are advised to upgrade to these updated

packages, which correct this issue. After installing this update, the

OpenStack Object Storage services will be restarted automatically.

 

4. Solution:

relevant to your system have been applied.
