The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the way QEMU emulated the e1000 network interface
card when the host was configured to accept jumbo network frames, and
a fully- virtualized guest using the e1000 emulated driver was not. A
remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the guest or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with root privileges in the guest.
After installing the updated packages, all running fully-virtualized
guests must be restarted for this update to take effect.
