Description Marcus Meissner 2014-03-07 07:20:05 UTC
via oss-sec Date: Thu, 06 Mar 2014 15:22:06 +0100 From: Florian Weimer <email@example.com> Subject: [oss-security] CVE request: cloud-init DNS resolution fix Prior to version 0.7.0, cloud-init could send requests for EC2 instance data to untrusted systems: https://bugs.launchpad.net/cloud-init/+bug/1040200 http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~cloud-init-dev/cloud-init/trunk/revision/635 This could allow someone who has control over a suitable domain name to obtain root rights on an affected system. This was reported and fixed silently in 2012, so it would need a 2012 CVE name. (This issue is not specific to cloud-init, there seem to be some wget scripts out there which exhibit the same behavior, but it's probably some custom stuff that's not distributed anywhere, so no CVE is needed for that.) -- Florian Weimer / Red Hat Product Security Team References: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1073591

Comment 3 Marcus Meissner 2014-03-07 07:27:19 UTC
revising last comment ... is_maintained cloud-init <empty> Is cloud-init not used anymore?
Comment 4 Vincent Untz 2014-03-07 08:13:29 UTC
It's maintained by Robert, not by the SUSE Cloud team.
Comment 10 Marcus Meissner 2014-03-07 14:46:26 UTC
As we do not ship this anymore, and PubCloud uses 0.7.x, we can consider this fixed.
