    The package ceph before version 15.2.6-1 is vulnerable to multiple
    issues including authentication bypass, content spoofing, cross-site
    scripting and private key recovery.
    Upgrade to 15.2.6-1.
    # pacman -Syu "ceph>=15.2.6-1"
    The problems have been fixed upstream in version 15.2.6.
    - CVE-2020-1759 (private key recovery)
    A vulnerability was found in Red Hat Ceph Storage 4 and Red Hat
    Openshift Container Storage 4.2, where a nonce reuse vulnerability was
    discovered in the secure mode of the messenger v2 protocol, which can
    allow an attacker to forge auth tags and potentially manipulate the
    data by leveraging the reuse of a nonce in a session. Messages
    encrypted using a reused nonce value are susceptible to serious
    confidentiality and integrity attacks.
    - CVE-2020-1760 (cross-site scripting)
    A flaw was found in the Ceph Object Gateway, where it supports request
    sent by an anonymous user in Amazon S3. This flaw could lead to
    potential XSS attacks due to the lack of proper neutralization of
    untrusted input. If the attacker knows the path to a publicly readable
    object on any RGW cluster and the object is at least large enough to
    cover the attack body then it is possible to run an XSS on any object.
    - CVE-2020-10753 (content spoofing)
    A flaw was found in the Ceph Storage RadosGW (Ceph Object Gateway). The
    vulnerability is related to the injection of HTTP headers via a CORS
    ExposeHeader tag. The newline character in the ExposeHeader tag in the
    CORS configuration file generates a header injection in the response
    when the CORS request is made. This issue affects the RadosGW S3 API,
    it does not affect the Swift API.
    - CVE-2020-25660 (authentication bypass)
    A flaw was found in the Cephx authentication protocol in versions
    before 15.2.6 and before 14.2.14, where it does not verify Ceph clients
    correctly and is then vulnerable to replay attacks in Nautilus. This
    flaw allows an attacker with access to the Ceph cluster network to
    authenticate with the Ceph service via a packet sniffer and perform
    actions allowed by the Ceph service. This issue is a reintroduction of
    CVE-2018-1128, affecting the msgr2 protocol. The msgr2 protocol is used
    for all communication except older clients that do not support the
    msgr2 protocol. The msgr1 protocol is not affected. The highest threat
    from this vulnerability is to confidentiality, integrity, and system
    An attacker might be able to decrypt and force Ceph messages, bypass
    CORS and exploit XSS to trick a user into performing an unwanted
