As a consequence, if certain security-sensitive files in the guest were edited using virt-edit, they would become world-readable. Proposed upstream patch: https://www.redhat.com/archives/libguestfs/2012-February/msg00034.html References: https://www.redhat.com/archives/libguestfs/2012-February/msg00033.html https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=788642 Thanks, -- Petr Matousek / Red Hat Security Response Team
