    1. Summary:
    
    Updated ruby193-v8 packages that fix one security issue are now available
    for Red Hat OpenStack 3.0.
    
    The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low
    security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
    which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
    the References section.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:

    3. Description:
    
    V8 is Google's open source JavaScript engine.
    
    A type confusion issue was found in the V8 JavaScript engine. An attacker
    could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or, potentially, execute
    arbitrary code. (CVE-2013-2882)
    
    Note: Exploitation of this issue requires, at the least, execution of
    malicious JavaScript. In the standard use case of ruby193-v8 in Red Hat
    OpenStack it is unlikely that a scenario exists where this would occur.
    
    Users of ruby193-v8 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
    which correct this issue.
