    1. Summary:
    
    Updated openstack-neutron packages that fix one security issue, several
    bugs, and add multiple enhancements are now available for Red Hat
    Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 5.0 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
    
    Red Hat Product Security 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:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 5.0 for RHEL 6 - noarch
    
    3. Description:
    
    OpenStack Networking (neutron) is a pluggable, scalable, and API-driven
    system that provisions networking services to virtual machines. Its main
    function is to manage connectivity to and from virtual machines. As of Red
    Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4.0, 'neutron' replaces 'quantum'
    as the core component of OpenStack Networking.
    
    It was discovered that unprivileged users could in some cases reset
    admin-only network attributes to their default values. This could lead to
    unexpected behavior or in some cases result in a denial of service.
    (CVE-2014-6414)
    
    The openstack-neutron packages have been upgraded to upstream version
    2014.1.3, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the
    previous version. (BZ#1149753)
    
    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. Details on how to use the
    Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
    https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258
    
    5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
    
    1142012 - CVE-2014-6414 openstack-neutron: Admin-only network attributes may be reset to defaults by non-privileged users
