Synopsis: Moderate: libvirt security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2011:0479-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-0479.html
Issue date: 2011-05-02
CVE Names: CVE-2011-1486
================================================== ===================

1. Summary:

Updated libvirt packages that fix one security issue and one bug are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop Optional (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6) - x86_64

3. Description:

The libvirt library is a C API for managing and interacting with the
virtualization capabilities of Linux and other operating systems. In
addition, libvirt provides tools for remotely managing virtualized systems.

A flaw was found in the way libvirtd handled error reporting for concurrent
connections. A remote attacker able to establish read-only connections to
libvirtd on a server could use this flaw to crash libvirtd. (CVE-2011-1486)

This update also fixes the following bug:

* Previously, running qemu under a different UID prevented it from
accessing files with mode 0660 permissions that were owned by a different
user, but by a group that qemu was a member of. (BZ#668692)

All libvirt users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to resolve these issues. After installing the
updated packages, libvirtd must be restarted ("service libvirtd restart")
for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at

Updated libvirt packages that fix one security issue and several bugs are
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in

3. Description:

The libvirt library is a C API for managing and interacting with the
virtualization capabilities of Linux and other operating systems. In
addition, libvirt provides tools for remotely managing virtualized systems.

An integer overflow flaw was found in libvirtd's RPC call handling. An
attacker able to establish read-only connections to libvirtd could trigger
this flaw by calling virDomainGetVcpus() with specially-crafted parameters,
causing libvirtd to crash. (CVE-2011-2511)

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* Previously, when the "virsh vol-create-from" command was run on an LVM
(Logical Volume Manager) storage pool, performance of the command was very
low and the operation consumed an excessive amount of time. This bug has
been fixed in the virStorageVolCreateXMLFrom() function, and the
performance problem of the command no longer occurs.

* Due to a regression, libvirt used undocumented command line options,
instead of the recommended ones. Consequently, the qemu-img utility used an
invalid argument while creating an encrypted volume, and the process
eventually failed. With this update, the bug in the backing format of the
storage back end has been fixed, and encrypted volumes can now be created
as expected. (BZ#726617)

* Due to a bug in the qemuAuditDisk() function, hot unplug failures were
never audited, and a hot unplug success was audited as a failure. This bug
has been fixed, and auditing of disk hot unplug operations now works as
expected. (BZ#728516)

* Previously, when a debug process was being activated, the act of
preparing a debug message ended up with dereferencing a UUID (universally
unique identifier) prior to the NULL argument check. Consequently, an API
running the debug process sometimes terminated with a segmentation fault.
With this update, a patch has been provided to address this issue, and the
crashes no longer occur in the described scenario. (BZ#728546)

* The libvirt library uses the "boot=on" option to mark which disk is
bootable but it only uses that option if Qemu advertises its support. The
qemu-kvm utility in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1 removed support for that
option and libvirt could not use it. As a consequence, when an IDE disk was
added as the second storage with a virtio disk being set up as the first
one by default, the operating system tried to boot from the IDE disk rather
than the virtio disk and either failed to boot with the "No bootable disk"
error message returned, or the system booted whatever operating system was
on the IDE disk. With this update, the boot configuration is translated
into bootindex, which provides control over which device is used for
booting a guest operating system, thus fixing this bug.

All users of libvirt are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing
the updated packages, libvirtd must be restarted ("service libvirtd
restart") for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

717199 - CVE-2011-2511 libvirt: integer overflow in VirDomainGetVcpus
726617 - libvirt regression with creating encrypted volume
728516 - Auditing of QEMU driver disk hotunplug events logs is missing and/or incorrect

3. Description:

The libvirt library is a C API for managing and interacting with the
virtualization capabilities of Linux and other operating systems. In
addition, libvirt provides tools for remote management of virtualized
systems.

A flaw was found in libvirtd's RPC call handling. An attacker able to
establish a read-only connection to libvirtd could trigger this flaw with a
specially-crafted RPC command that has the number of parameters set to 0,
causing libvirtd to access invalid memory and crash. (CVE-2012-3445)

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* Previously, repeatedly migrating a guest between two machines while using
the tunnelled migration could cause the libvirt daemon to lock up
unexpectedly. The bug in the code for locking remote drivers has been fixed
and repeated tunnelled migrations of domains now work as expected.
(BZ#847946)

* Previously, when certain system locales were used by the system, libvirt
could issue incorrect commands to the hypervisor. This bug has been fixed
and the libvirt library and daemon are no longer affected by the choice of
the user locale. (BZ#847959)

All users of libvirt are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing
the updated packages, libvirtd will be restarted automatically.

3. Description:

The libvirt library is a C API for managing and interacting with the
virtualization capabilities of Linux and other operating systems. In
addition, libvirt provides tools for remote management of virtualized
systems.

A flaw was found in libvirtd's RPC call handling. An attacker able to
establish a read-only connection to libvirtd could use this flaw to crash
libvirtd by sending an RPC message that has an event as the RPC number, or
an RPC number that falls into a gap in the RPC dispatch table.
(CVE-2012-4423)

This issue was discovered by Wenlong Huang of the Red Hat Virtualization QE
Team.

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* When the host_uuid option was present in the libvirtd.conf file, the
augeas libvirt lens was unable to parse the file. This bug has been fixed
and the augeas libvirt lens now parses libvirtd.conf as expected in the
described scenario. (BZ#858988)

* Disk hot plug is a two-part action: the qemuMonitorAddDrive() call is
followed by the qemuMonitorAddDevice() call. When the first part succeeded
but the second one failed, libvirt failed to roll back the first part and
the device remained in use even though the disk hot plug failed. With this
update, the rollback for the drive addition is properly performed in the
described scenario and disk hot plug now works as expected. (BZ#859376)

* When a virtual machine was started with an image chain using block
devices and a block rebase operation was issued, the operation failed on
completion in the blockJobAbort() function. This update relabels and
configures cgroups for the backing files and the rebase operation now
succeeds. (BZ#860720)

All users of libvirt are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing
the updated packages, libvirtd will be restarted automatically.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

857133 - CVE-2012-4423 libvirt: null function pointer invocation in virNetServerProgramDispatchCall()
858988 - The libvirt augeas lens can't parse a libvirtd.conf file where host_uuid is present
859376 - after failed hotplug qemu keeps the file descriptor open
860720 - Relabel and configure cgroups for the backing files on VIR_DOMAIN_BLOCK_JOB_ABORT_PIVOT
