Daniel P. Berrange discovered that incorrect memory handling in the
remoteDispatchDomainMemoryStats() function could lead to denial of
service.

The oldstable distribution (squeeze) is not affected.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.12-11+deb7u4. This update also includes some non-security
related bugfixes scheduled for the upcoming Wheezy 7.2 point release.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your libvirt packages.
