    Summary:
    
    Horizon could be made to expose sensitive information over the network.
    
    Software Description:
    - horizon: Web interface for OpenStack cloud infrastructure
    
    Details:
    
    Matthias Weckbecker discovered a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability
    in Horizon via the log viewer refrash mechanism. If a user were tricked
    into viewing a specially crafted log message, a remote attacker could
    exploit this to modify the contents or steal confidential data within the
    same domain. (CVE-2012-2094)

    attacker could exploit this to potentially allow access to unauthorized
    information and capabilities. (CVE-2012-2144)
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      python-django-horizon           2012.1-0ubuntu8.1
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
