Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2011-10-08 13:30:53 UTC
CVE-2011-2178 (
  The virSecurityManagerGetPrivateData function in security/security_manager.c
  in libvirt 0.8.8 through 0.9.1 uses the wrong argument for a sizeof call,
  which causes incorrect processing of "security manager private data" that
  "reopens disk probing" and might allow guest OS users to read arbitrary
  files on the host OS.  NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of a
  CVE-2010-2238 regression.
