nova vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 19.04
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


Nova could be made to expose sensitive information.

Software Description:
- nova: OpenStack Compute cloud infrastructure


Donny Davis discovered that the Nova Compute service could return
configuration or other information in response to a failed API
request in some situations. A remote attacker could use this to expose
sensitive information.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 19.04:
  nova-compute                    2:19.0.1-0ubuntu2.1
  python3-nova                    2:19.0.1-0ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  nova-compute                    2:17.0.10-0ubuntu2.1
  python-nova                     2:17.0.10-0ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  nova-compute                    2:13.1.4-0ubuntu4.5
  python-nova                     2:13.1.4-0ubuntu4.5

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
