Description

It was discovered that libvirt did not mark certain operations as read-only. A local attacker may be able to perform privileged actions such as migrating virtual machines, adjusting autostart flags, or accessing privileged data in the virtual machine memory and disks.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
