for Linux on a variety of architectures. The qemu-kvm-rhev packages
provide the user-space component for running virtual machines that use
KVM in environments managed by Red Hat products.
Security Fix(es) :
* An assertion-failure flaw was found in the Network Block Device
(NBD) server's initial connection negotiation, where the I/O
co-routine was undefined. This could crash the qemu-nbd server if a
client sent unexpected data during connection negotiation. A remote
user or process could use this flaw to crash the qemu-nbd server
resulting in denial of service. (CVE-2017-7539)
