Subject: Re: CVE request for vulnerability in OpenStack Glance

> 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: Glance user storage quota bypass
> Reporter: Tushar Patil (NTT)
> Products: Glance
> Versions: up to 2014.1.3 and 2014.2 version up to 2014.2.1
> Description:
> Tushar Patil from NTT reported a vulnerability in Glance. By deleting images
> that are being uploaded, a malicious user can overcome the storage quota and
> thus may overrun the backend. Images in deleted state are not taken into
> account by quota and won't be effectively deleted until the upload is
> completed. Only Glance setups configured with user_storage_quota are
> affected.
