Title: Remote code execution in Glance Sheepdog backend
Reporter: Paul McMillan (Nebula)

Versions: from 2013.2 to 2013.2.3

Paul McMillan from Nebula reported a vulnerability in Glance Sheepdog
backend. By using a specially crafted location, a user allowed to insert
or modify Glance image metadata may trigger code execution on the Glance
host as the user the Glance service runs under. This may result in
Glance host unauthorized access and further compromise of the Glance
service. All setups using Glance server with the (enabled by default)
sheepdog backend are affected.

This fix will be included in the icehouse-rc2 development milestone and
in a future 2013.2.4 release.
