Description

The (1) qemuDomainMigratePerform and (2) qemuDomainMigrateFinish2 functions in qemu/qemu_driver.c in libvirt do not unlock the domain when an ACL check fails, which allow local users to cause a denial of service via unspecified vectors.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-libvirt-bin
  • ubuntu-upgrade-libvirt0

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.
