Subject: CVE request for vulnerability in OpenStack Swift

A vulnerability was discovered in OpenStack (see below). In order to
ensure full traceability, we need a CVE number assigned that we can
attach to further notifications. This issue is already public,
although an advisory was not sent yet.

Title: Swift metadata constraints are not correctly enforced
Reporter: Rajaneesh Singh
Products: Swift
Versions: up to 2.1.0

Rajaneesh Singh reported a vulnerability in Swift enforcement of
metadata contraints. By adding metadata in several separate calls,
an authenticated attacker can bypass the max_meta_count constraint,
potentially resulting in the storage of more metadata than allowed
in configuration.


Thanks in advance,

Jeremy Stanley
OpenStack Vulnerability Management Team
