    cinder vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 12.10
    
    Summary:
    
    OpenStack Cinder could be made to expose sensitive information over the
    network.
    
    Software Description:
    - cinder: OpenStack storage service
    
    Details:
    
    JuanFra Rodriguez Cardoso discovered that OpenStack Cinder did not enforce
    SSL connections when Nova was configured to use QPid and qpid_protocol is
    set to 'ssl'. If a remote attacker were able to perform a man-in-the-middle
    attack, this flaw could be exploited to view sensitive information. Ubuntu
    does not use QPid with Nova by default.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 12.10:
      python-cinder                   2012.2.4-0ubuntu1.1
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
