Bug Fix Advisory perl-Sys-Virt bug fix and enhancement update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1573-2
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-12-06
Last updated on: 2011-12-06
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6)

Details

An updated perl-Sys-Virt package that fixes one bug and adds one enhancement is
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The perl-Sys-Virt package provides application programming interfaces (APIs) for
managing virtual machines from Perl, using the libvirt library.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, the flags argument was hardcoded to value 0 in
virDomainGetXMLDesc. As a result, security sensitive domain information was not
accessible using the libvirt perl bindings. This update adds the flags parameter
to all get_xml_description methods. Now, the security sensitive domain
information can be obtained as expected. (BZ#705792)

This update also adds the following enhancement:

* The Sys::Virt module has been updated to provide support for the new APIs
introduced between version 0.8.7 and 0.9.3 of the libvirt library. (BZ#717887)

All users of perl-Sys-Virt are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
fixes this bug and adds this enhancement.
