    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Swift, the Openstack
    object storage. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2013-2161
    
        Alex Gaynor from Rackspace reported a vulnerability in XML
        handling within Swift account servers. Account strings were
        unescaped in xml listings, and an attacker could potentially
        generate unparsable or arbitrary XML responses which may be
        used to leverage other vulnerabilities in the calling software.
    
    CVE-2013-4155
    
        Peter Portante from Red Hat reported a vulnerability in Swift.
        By issuing requests with an old X-Timestamp value, an
        authenticated attacker can fill an object server with superfluous
        object tombstones, which may significantly slow down subsequent
        requests to that object server, facilitating a Denial of Service
        attack against Swift clusters.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version $squeeze_VERSION.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.8-2+deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.8.0-6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your swift packages.
