1. Summary:

Updated openstack-swift packages that fix one security issue are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 5.0 (Icehouse)
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Moderate

which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

3. Description:

OpenStack Object Storage (Swift) provides object storage in virtual
containers, which allows users to store and retrieve files (arbitrary
data).

It was found that Swift did not escape all HTTP header values, allowing
data to be injected into the responses sent from the Swift server. This
could lead to cross-site scripting attacks (and possibly other impacts) if
a user were tricked into clicking on a malicious URL. (CVE-2014-3497)

Red Hat would like to thank the OpenStack project for reporting this issue.
Upstream acknowledges the Globo.com Security Team as the original reporter.

All users of openstack-swift are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which correct this issue. After installing this update, the
OpenStack Object Storage services will be restarted automatically.
