[Libvirt-announce] LSN-2014-0008: CVE-2014-8131 deadlock or segfault in virConnectGetAllDomainStats



        Libvirt Security Notice: LSN-2014-0008
        ======================================

       Summary: deadlock or segfault in virConnectGetAllDomainStats
   Reported on: 20141127
  Published on: 20141205
      Fixed on: 20141211
   Reported by: Martin Kletzander <mkletzan redhat com>
    Patched by: Martin Kletzander <mkletzan redhat com>,
                Francesco Romani <fromani redhat com>
      See also: CVE-2014-8131

Description
-----------

When using fine-grained ACLs to restrict users from accessing all
domains, a logic bug in the qemu implementation of
virConnectGetAllDomainStats could result in incorrect lock
management of the next domain inspected after a domain that was
skipped due to ACL restrictions.

Impact
------

A restricted client can trigger a denial of service against a more
privileged user when libvirtd goes into deadlock when trying to lock
an incorrectly locked domain, or crashes when trying to unlock a
domain that was not locked.

Workaround
----------

Stop use of the fine grained access control mechanism, or stop
trying to use access control to restrict the set of domains that an
authorized client can see.

Affected product
