The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the way QEMU-KVM handled the reloading of fs and
gs segment registers when they had invalid selectors. A privileged
host user with access to '/dev/kvm' could use this flaw to crash the
host (denial of service). (CVE-2010-3698)
The following procedure must be performed before this update will take
1) Stop all KVM guest virtual machines.
2) Either reboot the hypervisor machine or, as the root user, remove
(using 'modprobe -r [module]') and reload (using 'modprobe [module]')
all of the following modules which are currently running (determined
using 'lsmod'): kvm, ksm, kvm-intel or kvm-amd.
3) Restart the KVM guest virtual machines.
