Description

The libxlDomainGetNumaParameters function in the libxl driver (libxl/libxl_driver.c) in libvirt before 1.2.1 does not properly initialize the nodemap, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (invalid free operation and crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via an inactive domain to the virsh numatune command.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-app-emulation-libvirt
