[Openstack-security] [Bug 1837339] Re: CIDR's of the form 184.108.40.206/0 should be an error
Per Tristan's suggestion, the VMT will treat this as a security
hardening opportunity, no advisory needed.

CIDR's of the form 220.127.116.11/0 should be an error
Status in OpenStack Dashboard (Horizon):
Status in neutron:
Status in OpenStack Security Advisory:
Status in OpenStack Security Notes:
The problem is that some users do not understand how CIDRs work, and
incorrectly use /0 when they are trying to specify a single IP or a
subnet in an Access Rule. Unfortunately 18.104.22.168/0 means the same
thing as 0.0.0.0/0.
The proposed fix is to insist that /0 only be used with 0.0.0.0/0 and
the IPv6 equivalent ::/0 when entering or updating Access Rule CIDRs
in via the dashboard.
I am labeling this as a security vulnerability since it leads to naive
users creating instances with ports open to the world when they didn't
intend to do that.
