Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Low. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat OpenStack Platform 10.0 - x86_64

3. Description:

Redis is an advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a
data-structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets,
and sorted sets. For performance, Redis works with an in-memory data set.
You can persist it either by dumping the data set to disk every once in a
while, or by appending each command to a log.

Security Fix(es):

* A permissions flaw was found in redis, which sets weak permissions on
certain files and directories that could potentially contain sensitive
information. A local, unprivileged user could possibly use this flaw to
access unauthorized system information. (CVE-2016-2121)

This issue was discovered by Honza Horak (Red Hat) and Remi Collet (Red
Hat).
