There are (at least) two CVE IDs needed because of the different
vulnerability types. The older code in which processutils.execute was
simply logging cmd directly, without any masking step, can be
considered an instance of the
http://cwe.mitre.org/data/definitions/532.html issue. For this, use
CVE-2014-7230.

The older code with a short _FORMAT_PATTERNS list, with a later
replacement by longer _FORMAT_PATTERNS_1 and _FORMAT_PATTERNS_2 lists,
can be considered an instance of the
http://cwe.mitre.org/data/definitions/184.html issue. Bug #1343604
mentions 'mask_password did not, for example, catch the usage ...
/usr/sbin/mysqld --password=top-secret ... They did catch ...
/usr/sbin/mysqld --password="top-secret" ... make the strings in
strutils.mask_password more robust.' For this, use CVE-2014-7231.

The additional complication is that there were apparently already
releases with incomplete fixes for CVE-2014-7230. Separate CVE IDs are
needed when parts of the problem were fixed in different releases. For
example, Cinder 2013.2.4 contains a fix for the "Running cmd
(subprocess)" logging problem but apparently does not contain a fix
for the "Running cmd (SSH)" logging problem. The patch for the latter
is shown in the
https://git.openstack.org/cgit/openstack/trove/commit/?id=9672744f090d462cac5eb757ceaacd7122362708
commit. Is this a remaining vulnerability in Cinder 2013.2.4 and
possibly other products? If so, then we will assign another CVE ID.
