A security issue has been reported in libvirt, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to bypass certain security restrictions.
The security issue is caused due to the application not properly checking if a connection to libvirtd is in read-only or read-write mode. This can be exploited to perform certain administrative tasks by using methods, which are not performing checks on the read-only connection flag.
This security issue is reported in version 0.3.2 through 0.5.1. Other versions may also be affected.
