[Libguestfs] FYI: CVE-2012-2652 in qemu could affect libguestfs users



Jim Meyering found various flaws in the creation of temporary files in
qemu.  For more details see:

http://marc.info/?l=qemu-devel&m=133819025731504&w=2
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/CVE-2012-2652

This problem could affect libguestfs users, particularly (but not
exclusively) if libguestfs was run as root.  No update is needed for
libguestfs, but you should check that the version of qemu you are
using contains a fix for this bug.
