Correct, because those patches aren't official yet. But at the same time, the out-of-bounds bugs can no longer be used as a remote exploit vehicle, because the official patch 4.3.27 (and friends) guarantee that arbitrary values no longer call into the parser. > > While not exposing the parser to random variables should shield that > somewhat and reduce impact, they still should be fixed and the redhat > patch looks pretty straightforward. I'm sure Chet has plans to post more official patches in the coming week. -- Eric Blake eblake redhat com +1-919-301-3266 Libvirt virtualization library http://libvirt.org Download attachment "signature.asc" of type "application/pgp-signature" (540 bytes)
