Description Andrej Nemec 2017-08-31 13:41:00 UTC
A local non-root user with access to the D-Bus system bus can call the
CheckConfig method implemented in the tcmu-runner daemon via
handler_glfs.so and cause various kinds of segmentation faults,
depending on the string passed to the method.

For example the "hosts" variable in glfs_check_config() is not zero
initialized, but always freed on error, causing invalid free and/or
invalid memory accesses.
