Subject: Security ERRATA Low: libvirt on SL6.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Monday 9th July 2012 15:04:59 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Synopsis:    Low: libvirt security, bug fix, and enhancement update
Issue Date:  2012-06-20
CVE Numbers: CVE-2012-2693


The libvirt library is a C API for managing and interacting with the
virtualization capabilities of Linux and other operating systems. In
addition, libvirt provides tools for remote management of virtualized
systems.

Bus and device IDs were ignored when attempting to attach multiple USB
devices with identical vendor or product IDs to a guest. This could result
in the wrong device being attached to a guest, giving that guest root
access to the device. (CVE-2012-2693)

These updated libvirt packages include numerous bug fixes and enhancements.

All users of libvirt are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which fix these issues and add these enhancements. After installing the
updated packages, libvirtd must be restarted ("service libvirtd restart")
for this update to take effect.
