Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2012:1202 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: libvirt security and bug fix update 2012-08-23 18:55:07 UTC

Description Petr Matousek 2012-07-31 14:49:36 UTC
It has been found that sending crafted RPC command with nparams set to 0 can lead to libvirtd accessing random memory, possibly leading to crash. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash libvirtd (DoS).
