Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.69656
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:0586
Summary:Redhat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:0586
Description:The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:0586.

libguestfs is a library for accessing and modifying guest disk images.

libguestfs relied on the format auto-detection in QEMU rather than
allowing the guest image file format to be specified. A privileged guest
user could potentially use this flaw to read arbitrary files on the host
that were accessible to a user on that host who was running a program that
utilized the libguestfs library. (CVE-2010-3851)

This erratum upgrades libguestfs to upstream version 1.7.17, which includes
a number of bug fixes and one enhancement. Documentation for these bug
fixes and this enhancement is provided in the Technical Notes document,
linked to in the References section.

All libguestfs users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which correct this issue, and fix the bugs and add the enhancement noted
in the Technical Notes.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
