More information:

Zane Bitter from Red Hat discovered a vulnerability in Aodh, the alarm engine for OpenStack. Aodh does not verify that the user creating the alarm is the trustor or has the same rights as the trustor, nor that the trust is for the same project as the alarm. The bug allows that an authenticated user without a Keystone token with knowledge of trust IDs to perform unspecified authenticated actions by adding alarm actions.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 3.0.0-4+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your aodh packages.
