    1. Summary:
    
    Updated python-django-horizon packages that fix three security issues,
    multiple bugs, and add an enhancement are now available for Red Hat
    Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 5.0 (Icehouse) for Red Hat Enterprise
    Linux 7.
    
    The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Moderate
    security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
    which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
    from the CVE links in the References section.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    OpenStack 5.0 for RHEL 7 - noarch
    
    3. Description:
    
    OpenStack Dashboard (Horizon) provides administrators and users with a
    graphical interface to access, provision, and automate cloud-based
    resources.
    
    A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way orchestration
    templates were handled. An owner of such a template could use this flaw to
    perform XSS attacks against other Horizon users. (CVE-2014-3473)
    
    It was found that network names were not sanitized. A malicious user could
    use this flaw to perform XSS attacks against other Horizon users by
    creating a network with a specially crafted name. (CVE-2014-3474)
    
    It was found that certain email addresses were not sanitized. An
    administrator could use this flaw to perform XSS attacks against other
    Horizon users by storing an email address that has a specially crafted
    name. (CVE-2014-3475)
    
    Red Hat would like to thank the OpenStack project for reporting these
    issues. Upstream acknowledges Jason Hullinger from Hewlett Packard as the
    original reporter of CVE-2014-3473, Craig Lorentzen from Cisco as the
    original reporter of CVE-2014-3474, and Michael Xin from Rackspace as the
    original reporter of CVE-2014-3475.
    
    This update also fixes the following bugs:
    
    * The python-django-horizon package has been updated to upstream version
    2014.1.1. This includes several important bug fixes, including an issue
    that prevented access to Swift pseudo-folders through the Dashboard, and
    an issue that prevented instances from being launched when using the French
    locale (or other locales that use apostrophes). (BZ#1117901)
    
    Lastly, this update also adds the following enhancement:
    
    * A new "Update" option has been added for OpenStack Networking VPNaaS
    support for Dashboard. This makes it easier to use Virtual Private Network
    as a Service (VPNaaS). (BZ#1042030)
    
    All python-django-horizon users are advised to upgrade to these updated
    packages, which correct these issues and add this enhancement.
