Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libvirt (MDVSA-2015:070)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 82323
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated 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 18.104.22.168 version whish has more robust fixes for MDVSA-2015:023 and MDVSA-2015:035.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
