Description

Multiple race conditions in the (1) virDomainBlockStats, (2) virDomainGetBlockInf, (3) qemuDomainBlockJobImpl, and (4) virDomainGetBlockIoTune functions in libvirt before 1.2.1 do not properly verify that the disk is attached, which allows remote read-only attackers to cause a denial of service (libvirtd crash) via the virDomainDetachDeviceFlags command.

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.
