    OpenStack Neutron would allow unintended access to configuration over the
    network.

    Details:
    
    Elena Ezhova discovered that OpenStack Neutron did not properly perform
    access control checks for attributes. A remote authenticated attacker could
    exploit this to bypass intended access controls and reset admin-only
    attributes to default values.
