Red Hat Security Advisory
Synopsis: Moderate: openstack-cinder, openstack-glance, and
openstack-nova security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2017:0282-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2017-0282.html
Issue date: 2017-02-15
CVE Names: CVE-2015-5162
An update for openstack-nova, openstack-cinder, openstack-glance, and
python-oslo-concurrency is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux
OpenStack Platform 7.0 (Kilo) for RHEL 7.
Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
the CVE link(s) in the References section.
2. Relevant releases/architectures:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 7.0 (Kilo) for RHEL 7 - noarch
The Oslo concurrency library has utilities for safely running multi-thread,
multi-process applications using locking mechanisms, and for running
OpenStack Compute (nova) launches and schedules large networks of virtual
machines, creating a redundant and scalable cloud computing platform.
Compute provides the software, control panels, and APIs required to
orchestrate a cloud, including running virtual machine instances and
controlling access through users and projects.
OpenStack Image Service (glance) provides discovery, registration, and
delivery services for disk and server images. The service provides the
ability to copy or snapshot a server image, and immediately store it away.
Stored images can be used as a template to get new servers up and running
quickly and more consistently than installing a server operating system and
individually configuring additional services.
OpenStack Block Storage (cinder) manages block storage mounting and the
presentation of such mounted block storage to instances. The backend
physical storage can consist of local disks, or Fiber Channel, iSCSI, and
NFS mounts attached to Compute nodes. In addition, Block Storage supports
volume backups, and snapshots for temporary save and restore operations.
Programmatic management is available via Block Storage's API.
* A resource vulnerability in the OpenStack Compute (nova), Block Storage
(cinder), and Image (glance) services was found in their use of qemu-img.
An unprivileged user could consume as much as 4 GB of RAM on the compute
host by uploading a malicious image. This flaw could lead possibly to host
out-of-memory errors and negatively affect other running tenant instances.
oslo.concurrency has been updated to support process limits
which is needed to fix this flaw. (CVE-2015-5162)
This issue was discovered by Richard W.M. Jones (Red Hat).
* qemu-img calls were unrestricted by ulimit. oslo.concurrency has been
updated to add support for process limits ('prlimit'), which is needed
fix the CVE-2015-5162 security vulnerability. (BZ#1383415)
