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

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.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
