-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA256

OpenStack Security Advisory: 2013-022
CVE: CVE-2013-4155
Date: August 7, 2013
Title: Swift Denial of Service using superfluous object tombstones
Reporter: Peter Portante (Red Hat)
Products: Swift
Affects: All versions

Description:
Peter Portante from Red Hat reported a vulnerability in Swift. By
issuing requests with an old X-Timestamp value, an authenticated
attacker can fill an object server with superfluous object tombstones,
which may significantly slow down subsequent requests to that object
server, facilitating a Denial of Service attack against Swift clusters.

Havana (development branch) fix:

Grizzly fix:

Folsom fix:
https://review.openstack.org/40646

Note:
The havana fix will be included in the upcoming Swift 1.9.1 release.
