    Package        : swauth
    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-16613
    Debian Bug     : 882314
    
    A vulnerability has been discovered in swauth, an authentication system for
    Swift, a distributed virtual object store used in Openstack.
    
    The authentication token for an user is saved in clear text to the log file,
    which could enable an attacker with access to the logs to bypass the
    authentication provided by swauth.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.0-2+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your swauth packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of swauth please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
