    Package        : libvirt
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-10161 CVE-2019-10167
    
    Two vulnerabilities were discovered in Libvirt, a virtualisation
    abstraction library, allowing an API client with read-only permissions
    to execute arbitrary commands via the virConnectGetDomainCapabilities
    API, or read or execute arbitrary files via the
    virDomainSaveImageGetXMLDesc API.
    
    Additionally the libvirt's cpu map was updated to make addressing
    CVE-2018-3639, CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2018-12126,
    CVE-2018-12127, CVE-2018-12130 and CVE-2019-11091 easier by supporting
    the md-clear, ssbd, spec-ctrl and ibpb CPU features when picking CPU
    models without having to fall back to host-passthrough.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.0.0-4+deb9u4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libvirt packages.
