[Libvirt-announce] LSN-2014-0010: CVE-2014-8136 deadlock on failed migration



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

       Summary: deadlock on failed migration
   Reported on: 20141208
  Published on: 20141208
      Fixed on: 20141209
   Reported by: Peter Krempa <pkrempa redhat com>
    Patched by: Peter Krempa <pkrempa redhat com>
      See also: CVE-2014-8136

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

When using fine-grained ACLs to restrict users from migrating
domains, a logic bug could leave the domain locked and prevent
further operation on that domain.

Impact
------

A client that lacks the domain:migrate fine-grained ACL could use a
failed migration attempt to trigger a denial of service against a
more privileged user.

Workaround
----------

The bug is mitigated by the fact that the "perform" and "finish"
states of migration can generally be reached only after a successful
"begin" or "prepare" state, both of which also require the same
domain:migrate permission. Furthermore, the "prepare" state also
requires the domain:write permission, and any user which has been
granted that permission is already deemed to have full control over
the system; even if domain:migrate permission is dynamically denied
after migration has already started in order to trigger the flaw, an
attack by such a user generally does not constitute a denial of
service against a more privileged user. On the other hand, a
malicious client that has access to the read-write socket via only a
weaker privilege such as domain:read can send RPC commands out of
order, to attempt a "perform" without going through the
prerequisite states, and thereby trigger the bug in a manner that
forms a denial of service. Read-only clients cannot trigger the
problem, even via bad RPC commands. It is possible to avoid the bug
by not using the fine-grained access control mechanism.
