Description

Red Hat libvirt, possibly 0.7.2 through 0.8.2, recurses into disk-image backing stores without extracting the defined disk backing-store format, which might allow guest OS users to read arbitrary files on the host OS, and possibly have unspecified other impact, via unknown vectors.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-libvirt
  • suse-upgrade-libvirt-client
  • 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.
