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: Nova VMware driver may connect VNC to another tenant's console Reporter: Marcio Roberto Starke Products: Nova Versions: up to 2014.1.3 Description: Marcio Roberto Starke reported a vulnerability in the Nova VMware driver. A race condition in its VNC port allocation may cause it to connect the wrong console if instances are created concurrently. By repeatedly spawning new instances, an authenticated user may be able to gain unauthorized console access to instances belonging to other tenants. Only Nova setups using the VMware driver and the VNC proxy service are affected.
