Description

Package : libvirt Version : 0.9.12.3-1+deb7u3 CVE ID : CVE-2018-1064 CVE-2018-5748 Debian Bug : 887700

Daniel P. Berrange and Peter Krempa of Red Hat discovered a flaw in libvirt, a virtualization API. A lack of restriction for the amount of data read by QEMU Monitor socket can lead to a denial of service by exhaustion of memory resources.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 0.9.12.3-1+deb7u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your libvirt packages.
