_______________________________________________________________________

Package : libvirt
Date : November 21, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated libvirt packages fix security vulnerability:

Eric Blake discovered that libvirt incorrectly handled permissions
when processing the qemuDomainFormatXML command. An attacker with
read-only privileges could possibly use this to gain access to certain
information from the domain xml file (CVE-2014-7823).
