Subject Reminder: potential security issues
Date Thu, 22 Jan 2015 01:52:50 GMT
Everyone - we’ve[1] noticed a commit recently that's related to improving the security of
CloudStack (I’m referring to the timing attack commit).

We love seeing folks have an interest in the security of CloudStack - the one request we make
is if you your work improves the security of ACS or patches a potential security vulnerability,
shoot<> a quick
note before you commit, submit code for review, or submit a pull request. We’ll take a quick
peek and let you know if we’re OK with you continuing with your thing, or if we want to
treat it as a formal security issue and run through the process at [2]. I do watch the commits
and scan for a collection of keywords that could indicate issues, but would rather catch issues
before they’re public.

Thanks for all your efforts!

1: (The<> “we”)

ps for the record, I’m not really worried about somebody leveraging a timing attack vulnerability
so not too concerned about this case.
