Fedora 7 : kvm-36-8.fc7 (2008-1973)

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Ian Jackson discovered that accesses beyond end of qemu emulated disk
devices can result in accesses to emulator's virtual memory space
accesses and thus can allow user with sufficient privilege in guest
(root, as this would need modification to kernel's driver) to break
out of VM. http://marc.info/?l =debian-security&m=120343592917055&w=2

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
