    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).

    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).

    version 0.8.3-5+squeeze2.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.4.6-10+lenny2.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems will fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.9.2-7).                                                                                                                                                          
                   
                                                                                                                                                                         
    We recommend that you upgrade your libvirt packages.
