[Libvirt-announce] LSN-2014-0005: CVE-2014-3657



        Libvirt Security Notice: LSN-2014-0005
        ======================================

       Summary: virConnectListAllDomains can deadlock
   Reported on: 20140922
  Published on: 20141001
      Fixed on: 20141001
   Reported by: Pavel Hrdina <phrdina redhat com>
    Patched by: Pavel Hrdina <phrdina redhat com>
      See also: CVE-2014-3657

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

The common implementation of virConnectListAllDomains used an early
return statement instead of jumping to a cleanup label when the API
was used with a NULL list parameter to merely obtain a count of
domains that match the filters. Because it missed the cleanup label,
this left the list of domains locked and prevented all further APIs
from accessing the list.

Impact
------

A read-only client can cause a denial of service attack against a
privileged client by passing a NULL parameter to force the deadlock
condition.

Workaround
----------

As long as all callers pass a non-NULL argument to
virConnectListAllDomains to collect an actual list rather than just
a count, the deadlock will not occur (this mode of operation is the
only mode used by virsh and in the python bindings, which is why the
bug has existed undetected for so long). Denying access to the
readonly libvirt socket will avoid the potential for a denial of
service attack, but will not prevent the deadlock if a privileged
client passes a NULL argument, although such a hang is no longer a
security problem.
