1. Summary:

Updated openstack-trove packages that fix two security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 5.0 for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.

3. Description:

OpenStack Database (trove) is Database as a Service for Openstack. It runs
entirely on OpenStack, with the goal of allowing users to quickly and
easily utilize the features of a database without the burden of handling
complex administrative tasks. Cloud users and database administrators can
provision and manage multiple database instances as needed.

It was found that the processutils.execute() and strutils.mask_password()
functions did not correctly sanitize the authentication details from their
output before storing them in log files. This could allow an attacker with
read access to these log files to obtain sensitive information such as
passwords. (CVE-2014-7230, CVE-2014-7231)

The openstack-trove packages have been upgraded to upstream version
2014.1.3, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the
previous version. (BZ#1149745)

All openstack-trove users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which correct these issues and add these enhancements.
