The bdrv_open function in Qemu 1.0 does not properly handle the failure of the mkstemp function, when in snapshot node, which allows local users to overwrite or read arbitrary files via a symlink attack on an unspecified temporary file.

  • suse-upgrade-kvm
  • suse-upgrade-kvm-debuginfo
  • suse-upgrade-kvm-debugsource

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.
