OSSA-2013-002: Backend password leak in Glance error message

Date:January 29, 2013


  • Glance: All versions


Dan Prince of Red Hat discovered an issue in Glance error reporting. By creating an image in Glance by URL that references a mis-configured Swift endpoint, or if the Swift endpoint that a previously-ACTIVE image references for any reason becomes unusable, an authenticated user may access the Glance operator’s Swift credentials for that endpoint. Only setups that use the single-tenant Swift store are affected.
