Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in libvirt, allowing remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause Denial of Service.

Background
==========

libvirt is a C toolkit for manipulating virtual machines.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 app-emulation/libvirt < 1.0.5.1-r3 >= 1.0.5.1-r3

Description
===========

An error in the virNetMessageFree() function in
rpc/virnetserverclient.c can lead to a use-after-free. Additionally, a
socket leak in the remoteDispatchStoragePoolListAllVolumes command can
lead to file descriptor exhaustion.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could cause certain errors during an RPC connection
to cause a message to be freed without being removed from the message
queue, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of
Service condition. Additionally, a remote attacker could repeatedly
issue the command to list all pool volumes, causing a Denial of Service
condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All libvirt users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=app-emulation/libvirt-1.0.5.1-r3"

==========
