The virSecurityManagerGetPrivateData function in
security/security_manager.c in libvirt 0.8.8 through 0.9.1 uses the
wrong argument for a sizeof call, which causes incorrect processing of
"security manager private data" that "reopens disk probing" and might
allow guest OS users to read arbitrary files on the host OS. NOTE:
this vulnerability exists because of a CVE-2010-2238 regression.
