Scientific Linux Security Update : libvirt on SL6.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 64282
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA flaw was found in the way libvirtd handled connection cleanup (when a connection was being closed) under certain error conditions. A remote attacker able to establish a read-only connection to libvirtd could use this flaw to crash libvirtd or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the root user. (CVE-2013-0170)
After installing the updated packages, libvirtd will be restarted automatically.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
