Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libvirt (MDVSA-2015:023)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 80560


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


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).


Update the affected packages.
