Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-01-19 11:36:52 UTC
From ${URL} :

A race condition was found in the way libvirtd handled keepalive initialization requests when the 
connection is closed prior to establishing connection credentials.

A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash libvirtd (DoS).

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
Comment 1 Doug Goldstein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-01-24 14:45:33 UTC
This and a few other CVEs have been fixed in tree and awaiting stabilization. Off the top of my head its:


The following versions would solve all the outstanding CVEs:


x86 is actually vulnerable to a few more because we're still waiting on them for the last security bug.

Comment 6 GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2014-01-27 10:09:32 UTC
CVE-2014-1447 (
  Race condition in the virNetServerClientStartKeepAlive function in libvirt
  before 1.2.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (libvirtd
  crash) by closing a connection before a keepalive response is sent.

CVE-2014-0028 (
  libvirt 1.1.1 through 1.2.0 allows context-dependent attackers to bypass the
  domain:getattr and connect:search_domains restrictions in ACLs and obtain
  sensitive domain object information via a request to the (1)
  virConnectDomainEventRegister and (2) virConnectDomainEventRegisterAny
  functions in the event registration API.

CVE-2013-6458 (
  Multiple race conditions in the (1) virDomainBlockStats, (2)
  virDomainGetBlockInf, (3) qemuDomainBlockJobImpl, and (4)
  virDomainGetBlockIoTune functions in libvirt before 1.2.1 do not properly
  verify that the disk is attached, which allows remote read-only attackers to
  cause a denial of service (libvirtd crash) via the
  virDomainDetachDeviceFlags command.
