Yet, when (network) error does occur, the current item could be removed from the ring down the road and the assertion in RING_FOREACH()'s ring_next() could trip, causing the process containing the spice server to abort. An user able to initiate spice connection to the guest could use this flaw to crash the guest. Upstream fix: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/spice/spice/commit/?id=53488f0275d6c8a121af49f7ac817d09ce68090d References: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=984769 Thanks, -- Petr Matousek / Red Hat Security Response Team
