Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1464-01
Posted Jun 14, 2017
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1464-01 - OpenStack Orchestration is a template-driven engine used to specify and deploy configurations for Compute, Storage, and OpenStack Networking. The service can be used to automate post-deployment actions, which in turn allows automated provisioning of infrastructure, services, and applications. Additionally, Orchestration can be integrated with Telemetry alarms to implement auto-scaling for certain infrastructure resources. Security Fix: An access-control flaw was found in the OpenStack Orchestration service where a service log directory was improperly made world readable. A malicious system user could exploit this flaw to access sensitive information.
