The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the way QEMU-KVM emulated the e1000 network
interface card when the host was configured to accept jumbo network
frames, and a 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 this update, shut down all running virtual machines.
Once all virtual machines have shut down, start them again for this
update to take effect.
