Description Vincent Danen 2013-08-29 13:05:43 EDT
It was reported [1] that the parameters for the virDomainMigrate*Params RPC calls were not bounds checked, which meant that a malicious client could cause libvirtd to consume arbitrary memory.  This issue was introduced in libvirt 1.1.0 and has been corrected in git.

Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect the versions of libvirt as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 as they did not ship the vulnerable version.
