    1. Summary:
    An updated openstack-foreman-installer package that fixes one security
    issue, several bugs, and adds various enhancements is now available for Red
    Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4.0.
    The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Moderate

    3. Description:
    The openstack-foreman-installer package provides facilities for rapidly
    deploying Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4.
    It was discovered that the Qpid configuration created by
    openstack-foreman-installer did not have authentication enabled when run
    with default settings in standalone mode. An attacker able to establish a
    TCP connection to Qpid could access any OpenStack back end using Qpid (for
    example, nova) without any authentication. (CVE-2013-6470)
    This update also fixes several bugs and adds enhancements. Documentation
    for these changes is available in the Technical Notes document linked to
