OSSA-2016-007.2: Nova host data leak through resize/migration
=============================================================

:Date: March 08, 2016
:CVE: CVE-2016-2140

Affects
~~~~~~~
- Nova: <=2015.1.3, >=12.0.0 <=12.0.2

Description
~~~~~~~~~~~
Matthew Booth from Red Hat reported a vulnerability in Nova instance
resize/migration. By overwriting an ephemeral or root disk with a
malicious image before requesting a resize, an authenticated user may
be able to read arbitrary files from the compute host. Only setups
using libvirt driver with raw storage and setting "usecowimages =
False" (not default) are affected.

Errata
~~~~~~
The former fix did not take into account the usage of non-disk-image
backends and caused a regression for this use-case. This update
provides an additional fix for that issue. Moreover, the kilo backport
caused a regression in live migration where the disk info file is JSON
encoded. This second update provides an additional fix for
stable/kilo.
