OSSA-2015-005: Nova console Cross-Site WebSocket hijacking

:Date: March 13, 2015
:CVE: CVE-2015-0259

- Nova: up to 2014.1.3 and 2014.2 versions up to 2014.2.2

Brian Manifold from Cisco and Paul McMillan from Nebula reported a
vulnerability in Nova console websocket. By tricking an authenticated
user into visiting a malicious URL, a remote attacker or a man in the
middle may exploit a cross-site-websocket-hijacking vulnerability
resulting in potential hijack of consoles where the user is still
logged in. Only Nova setups with vnc or spice enabled are affected.
