Description

The virTypedParameterArrayClear function in libvirt 0.9.13 does not properly handle virDomain* API calls with typed parameters, which might allow remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (libvirtd crash) via an RPC command with nparams set to zero, which triggers an out-of-bounds read or a free of an invalid pointer.

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.
