libvirt vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 23.04
- Ubuntu 22.10
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in libvirt.

Software Description:
- libvirt: Libvirt virtualization toolkit


It was discovered that libvirt incorrectly handled the nwfilter driver. A
local attacker could possibly use this issue to cause libvirt to crash,
resulting in a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 22.04
LTS. (CVE-2022-0897)

It was discovered that libvirt incorrectly handled queries for the SR-IOV
PCI device capabilities. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to
cause libvirt to consume resources, leading to a denial of service.
