The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the way the host's qemu-kvm qxl driver and the
guest's X.Org qxl driver interacted when a SPICE connection
terminated. A user able to initiate a SPICE connection to a guest
could use this flaw to make the guest temporarily unavailable or,
potentially (if the sysctl kernel.softlockup_panic variable was set to
'1' in the guest), crash the guest. (CVE-2013-0241)
All running X.Org server instances using the qxl driver must be
restarted for this update to take effect.
