    It was discovered that libvirt, a library for interfacing with different virtualization systems, is prone to an integer overflow (CVE-2011-2511). Additionally, the stable version is prone to a denial of service, because its error reporting is not thread-safe (CVE-2011-1486).

    virtualization systems, is prone to an integer overflow (CVE-2011-2511).

    We recommend that you upgrade your libvirt packages.
