Description

libvirt, possibly before 0.9.12, does not properly assign USB devices to virtual machines when multiple devices have the same vendor and product ID, which might cause the wrong device to be associated with a guest and might allow local users to access unintended USB devices.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-libvirt
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-libvirt-client
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-libvirt-devel
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-libvirt-lock-sanlock
  • 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.
