Description

Guido Günther uploaded new packages for libvirt which fixed the following security problems:

CVE-2011-2511 Integer overflow in VirDomainGetVcpus

CVE-2011-1486 Non thread safe error reporting

For the squeeze-backports distribution the problems have been fixed in version 0.9.2-7~bpo60+1.

For the lenny-backports distribution the problems have been fixed in version 0.8.3-5+squeeze2~bpo50+2.

For lenny-backports only:

If you don't use pinning (see [1]) you have to update the package manually via "apt-get -t lenny-backports install <packagelist>" with the packagelist of your installed packages affected by this update. [1] <http://backports.debian.org/Instructions>

We recommend to pin (in /etc/apt/preferences) the backports repository to 200 so that new versions of installed backports will be installed automatically.

Package: * Pin: release a=lenny-backports Pin-Priority: 200
