Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : x11-driver-video-qxl (MDVSA-2013:138)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

Updated x11-driver-video-qxl package fixes security vulnerability :

A flaw was found in the way the host's qemu-kvm qxl driver and the
guest's X.Org qxl driver interacted when a SPICE connection
terminated. A user able to initiate a SPICE connection to a guest
could use this flaw to make the guest temporarily unavailable or,
potentially (if the sysctl kernel.softlockup_panic variable was set to
1 in the guest), crash the guest (CVE-2013-0241).

Solution :

Update the affected x11-driver-video-qxl package.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.1
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 1.6
(CVSS2#E:U/RL:OF/RC:C)
