Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2013-10-11 18:58:58 UTC
From ${URL} :


A vulnerability has been reported in libvirt, which can be exploited by malicious users to cause a 
DoS (Denial of Service).

The vulnerability is caused due to an error when handling callbacks deregistration via the 
"virConnectDomainEventDeregisterAny()" API function and can be exploited to cause a crash.

Successful exploitation requires the ACL drivers to be active.

Fixed in the git repository.

Original Advisory:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please say explicitly if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
Comment 1 Doug Goldstein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-10-11 19:57:32 UTC is not vulnerable to this issue. Its only for 1.1.0 and greater. The bump with this fix is already in the tree as part of 1.1.3.
