Subject: CVE request for vulnerability in OpenStack Nova

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: Nova VMWare driver leaks rescued images
Reporter: Jaroslav Henner (Red Hat)
Products: Nova
Versions: 2013.2 to 2013.2.2

Jaroslav Henner from Red Hat reported a vulnerability in Nova. By
requesting Nova place an image into rescue, then deleting
the image, an authenticated user my exceed their quota. This can
result in a denial of service via excessive resource consumption. Only
setups using the Nova VMWare driver are affected.


Thanks in advance,

Grant Murphy
