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.
Programatic management is available via Block Storage’s API.
A flaw was found in the GlusterFS and Linux smbfs drivers for OpenStack
Block Storage. A remote attacker could use this flaw to disclose an
arbitrary file from the cinder-volume host to a virtual instance by cloning
and attaching a volume with a malicious qcow2 header. (CVE-2014-3641)
Red Hat would like to thank the OpenStack project for reporting this issue.
