openSUSE Security Update : Hyper-V (openSUSE-SU-2012:1526-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes the following issues for Hyper-V: The source code
without this patch caused hv_kvp_daemon to exit when it processed a
spoofed Netlink packet which has been sent from an untrusted local
user. Now Netlink messages with a non-zero nl_pid source address are
ignored and a warning is printed into the syslog.

This fixes the previous change from CVE-2012-2669.
