+  <summary>libvirtd crash when reading numa tunables for libxl guest in shutoff status</summary>
+
+  <description>
+<![CDATA[The libxlDomainGetNumaParameters method in the libxl driver
+did not check whether the guest being accessed was running or
+not. When shutoff, the code attempts to clean up an uninitialized
+bitmap, causing malloc corruption most commonly observed as a crash.]]>
+  </description>
+
+  <impact>
+<![CDATA[A user who has permission to invoke the virDomainGetNumaParameters
+API against the libxl driver will be able to crash the libvirtd
+daemon. Access to this API is granted to any user who connects to the
+read-only libvirtd UNIX domain socket. If ACLs are active, access is
+granted to any user with the 'read' permission on the 'domain' object,
+which is granted by default to all users. As a result an unprivileged
+user will be able to inflict a denial of service attack on other users
+of the libvirtd daemon with higher privilege.]]>
+  </impact>
+
+  <workaround>
+<![CDATA[The impact can be mitigated by blocking access to the read-only
+libvirtd UNIX domain socket, with policykit or the 'auth_unix_ro' parameter
+in '/etc/libvirt/libvirtd.conf'. If ACLs are active, the 'read' permission
+should be removed from any untrusted users. This will not prevent the crash,
+but will stop unprivileged users from inflicting the denial of service
+on higher privileged users.]]>
