use this flaw to perform XSS attacks against other Horizon users by
creating a network with a specially crafted name. (CVE-2014-3474)

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* The python-django-horizon package has been updated to upstream version
2014.1.1. This includes several important bug fixes, including an issue
that prevented access to Swift pseudo-folders through the Dashboard, and
an issue that prevented instances from being launched when using the French
locale (or other locales that use apostrophes). (BZ#1117901)

Lastly, this update also adds the following enhancement:

* A new “Update” option has been added for OpenStack Networking VPNaaS
support for Dashboard. This makes it easier to use Virtual Private Network
