Description

The virNetServerProgramDispatchCall function in libvirt before 0.10.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and segmentation fault) via an RPC call with (1) an event as the RPC number or (2) an RPC number whose value is in a "gap" in the RPC dispatch table.
