Description

libvirtd in libvirt before 0.9.0 does not use thread-safe error reporting, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) by causing multiple threads to report errors at the same time.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-libvirt
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-libvirt-devel
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-libvirt-python

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
