Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libvirt (MDVSA-2015:070)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated libvirt packages fixes security vulnerabilities :

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).

The XML getters for for save images and snapshots objects don't check
ACLs for the VIR_DOMAIN_XML_SECURE flag and might possibly dump
security sensitive information. A remote attacker able to establish a
connection to libvirtd could use this flaw to cause leak certain
limited information from the domain xml file (CVE-2015-0236).

The updated packages provides the latest 1.1.3.9 version whish has
more robust fixes for MDVSA-2015:023 and MDVSA-2015:035.
