security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,

requests. If caching were enabled, an authenticated user could use this
flaw to obtain Glance's OpenStack Swift or Amazon Simple Storage Service
(Amazon S3) credentials. (CVE-2013-1840)

packages, the running Glance services must be manually restarted (using
