This flaw affects the polkit access control driver. Specifically, clients connecting to the read-write socket with limited ACL permissions could use this flaw to crash the libvirt daemon, resulting in a denial of service, or potentially escalate their privileges on the system. CVE-2020-25637 has been assigned for this flaw. Fixed in libvirt v6.8.0 (2020-10-01).
