The OpenStack Security Group (OSSG) publishes Security Notes to advise users of security related issues. Security notes are similar to advisories; they address vulnerabilities in 3rd party tools typically used within OpenStack deployments and provide guidance on common configuration mistakes that can result in an insecure operating environment.
