   An update that contains security fixes can now be installed.


   Openstack Keystone has been updated to fix various bugs and
   security  issues.

   The following security issues have been fixed:


   CVE-2013-0282: EC2-style authentication accepts
   disabled user/tenants.


   CVE-2013-0280: Jonathan Murray from NCC Group, Joshua
   Harlow from Yahoo! and Stuart Stent independently reported
   a vulnerability in the parsing of XML requests in Keystone,
   Nova and Cinder. By using entities in XML requests, an
   unauthenticated attacker may consume excessive resources on
   the Keystone, Nova or Cinder API servers, resulting in a
   denial of service and potentially a crash. Authenticated
   attackers may also leverage XML entities to read the
   content of a local file on the Keystone API server. This
   only affects servers with XML support enabled.
