Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2013-12-12 17:31:04 UTC
CVE-2013-4401 (
  The virConnectDomainXMLToNative API function in libvirt 1.1.0 through 1.1.3
  checks for the connect:read permission instead of the connect:write
  permission, which allows attackers to gain domain:write privileges and
  execute Qemu binaries via crafted XML.  NOTE: some of these details are
  obtained from third party information.

Filing for tracking.
