CVE-2013-4291 libvirt: supplementary groups not adjusted correctly when parsing label
Last modified: 2015-10-15 13:59:42 EDT
Upstream Commit 29fe5d7 (released in 1.1.1) introduced a latent problem for any caller of virSecurityManagerSetProcessLabel and where the domain already had a uid:gid label to be parsed. Such a setup would collect the list of supplementary groups during virSecurityManagerPreFork, but then ignores that information, and thus fails to call setgroups() to adjust the supplementary groups of the process.
This issue did not affect the versions of libvirt package as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.
