Description

Multiple methods in libvirt 0.3.2 through 0.5.1 do not check if a connection is read-only, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions and perform administrative actions.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-libvirt
  • suse-upgrade-libvirt-devel
  • suse-upgrade-libvirt-doc
  • suse-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.
