Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Updated libvirt packages fix security vulnerability :

The qemuDomainMigratePerform and qemuDomainMigrateFinish2 functions in
qemu/qemu_driver.c in libvirt do not unlock the domain when an ACL
check fails, which allow local users to cause a denial of service via
unspecified vectors (CVE-2014-8136).
