Fedora 16 : libvirt-0.9.6-4.fc16 (2011-17267)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This release of libvirt fixes a minor security problem with extraneous
iptables rules being added when an externally managed network (new
feature in 0.9.4) exists, along with several bugfixes. Another
important change in this release is code to automatically convert
guest definitions containing the deprecated 'fedora-13' machine type
over to 'pc-0.14' - support for the 'fedora-13' machine type will be
removed from qemu in Fedora 17, so all guests will need to be
reconfigured before that time; the code in this update handles the
reconfiguration automatically.

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.
