[CVE-2013-6480] Libcloud doesn't send scrub_data query parameter when destroying a DigitalOcean node Severity: Low Vendor: Apache Software Foundation Project: Apache Libcloud ( Affected Versions: Apache Libcloud 0.12.3 to 0.13.3 (version prior to 0.12.3 don't include a DigitalOcean driver) Description: DigitalOcean recently changed the default API behavior from scrub to non-scrub when destroying a VM. Libcloud doesn't explicitly send "scrub_data" query parameter when destroying a node. This means nodes which are destroyed using Libcloud are vulnerable to later customers stealing data contained on them. Note: Only users who are using DigitalOcean driver are affected by this issue. References: - - - - - - Mitigation: This vulnerability has been fixed in version 0.13.3. Users who use DigitalOcean driver are strongly encouraged to upgrade to this release.
