    nova vulnerabilities
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    OpenStack Nova could be made to expose sensitive information.
    Software Description:
    - nova: OpenStack Compute cloud infrastructure
    Garth Mollett discovered that OpenStack Nova did not properly clean up an
    instance when using rescue mode with the VMWare driver. A remove
    authenticated user could exploit this to bypass intended quota limits. By
    default, Ubuntu does not use the VMWare driver. (CVE-2014-3608)
    Amrith Kumar discovered that OpenStack Nova did not properly sanitize log
    message contents. Under certain circumstances, a local attacker with read
    access to Nova log files could obtain access to sensitive information.
    Update instructions:
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      python-nova                     1:2014.1.3-0ubuntu1.1
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
      CVE-2014-3608, CVE-2014-7230
