===================================================================== Red Hat Security Advisory Synopsis: Moderate: openstack-neutron security, bug fix, and enhancement update Advisory ID: RHSA-2014:0091-01 Product: Red Hat OpenStack Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-0091.html Issue date: 2014-01-22 CVE Names: CVE-2013-6419 ===================================================================== 1. Summary: Updated openstack-neutron packages that fix one security issue, several bugs, and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4.0. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate 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: OpenStack 4 - noarch 3. Description: The openstack-neutron packages provide Openstack Networking (neutron), the virtual network service. It was discovered that the metadata agent in OpenStack Networking was missing an authorization check on the device ID that is bound to a specific port. A remote tenant could guess the instance ID bound to a port and retrieve metadata of another tenant, resulting in information disclosure. Note that only OpenStack Networking setups running neutron-metadata-agent were affected. (CVE-2013-6419) Red Hat would like to thank Jeremy Stanley of the OpenStack Project for reporting this issue. Upstream acknowledges Aaron Rosen of VMware as the original reporter. The openstack-neutron packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2013.2.1, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. The most notable fixes and enhancements are: * Support for multiple workers in the Neutron API. This can be achieved by setting the 'workers=' parameter in the neutron.conf file. * The downtime and report interval default settings are tuned for neutron agents. * The floating IP address stability has been enhanced. * A heartbeat-related deadlock problem in neutron-server has been fixed. (BZ#1045419) This update also fixes the following bugs: * An incorrect warning was displayed when running neutron-dhcp-agent with Red Hat Enterprise Linux's version of dnsmasq. This meant that users were incorrectly warned that Red Hat Enterprise Linux's dnsmasq version will not work with neutron-dhcp-agent. This warning has been removed, and will no longer be logged to the neutron-dhcp-agent log file. (BZ#1040196) * A bug in the QPID topic consumer re-connection logic (under the v2 topology) caused qpidd to use a malformed subscriber address after restarting, resulting in RPC requests sent to a topic with multiple servers ending up being incorrectly multicast to all servers. This update removes the special-case reconnect logic that handles UUID addresses, which in turn avoids the incorrect establishment of multiple subscription to the same fanout address. The QPID broker now simply automatically generates unique queue names when clients reconnect. (BZ#1045067) * Thread-consuming QPID messages were killed silently by unhandled errors, thus resulting in isolating the component from the rest of the system. With this update, consuming threads are made more resilient to errors by ensuring they do not die on an unhandled error. The error is now logged, and the consuming thread is retried. (BZ#1054249) In addition, this update adds the following enhancement: * Previously, instances connected to tenant networks gained outside connectivity by going through an SNAT by the L3 agent hosting that network's virtual router. With this release, the ability to disable SNAT/PAT on virtual servers is added ensuring that an instance in a tenant network subnet will retain its IP address as it passes through external networks. For example, if 10.0.0.1 is an instance in the 10.0.0.0/8 tenant network, R1, a virtual router that connects the 10.0.0.0/8 subnet to the 22.214.171.124/8 public provider networks, then you can use the 'neutron router-gateway-set --disable-snat R1 public' command and any traffic from 10.0.0.1, which is forwarded out to the provider network, will retain its actual source IP address of 10.0.0.1. This can be a flexible and useful method to connect instances directly to a provider network, while retaining it in a tenant network. (BZ#1046070) All openstack-neutron users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues and add these enhancements. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied. This update is available via the Red Hat Network.
