Description

The (1) backup (api/contrib/backups.py) and (2) volume transfer (contrib/volume_transfer.py) APIs in OpenStack Cinder Grizzly 2013.1.3 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource consumption and crash) via an XML Entity Expansion (XEE) attack. NOTE: this issue is due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2013-1664.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
