RHEL 6 : rhev-hypervisor6 (RHSA-2013:1181)

Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.

Description :

An updated rhev-hypervisor6 package that fixes three security issues
and various bugs is now available.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for
each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

The rhev-hypervisor6 package provides a Red Hat Enterprise
Virtualization Hypervisor ISO disk image. The Red Hat Enterprise
Virtualization Hypervisor is a dedicated Kernel-based Virtual Machine
(KVM) hypervisor. It includes everything necessary to run and manage
virtual machines: A subset of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating
environment and the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Agent.

Note: Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor is only available
for the Intel 64 and AMD64 architectures with virtualization
extensions.

Upgrade Note: If you upgrade the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization
Hypervisor through the 3.2 Manager administration portal, the Host may
appear with the status of 'Install Failed'. If this happens, place the
host into maintenance mode, then activate it again to get the host
back to an 'Up' state.

It was discovered that NSS leaked timing information when decrypting
TLS/SSL and DTLS protocol encrypted records when CBC-mode cipher
suites were used. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to
retrieve plain text from the encrypted packets by using a TLS/SSL or
DTLS server as a padding oracle. (CVE-2013-1620)

It was found that the fix for CVE-2013-0167 released via
RHSA-2013:0907 was incomplete. A privileged guest user could
potentially use this flaw to make the host the guest is running on
unavailable to the management server. (CVE-2013-4236)

An out-of-bounds memory read flaw was found in the way NSS decoded
certain certificates. If an application using NSS decoded a malformed
certificate, it could cause the application to crash. (CVE-2013-0791)

Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting
CVE-2013-0791. Upstream acknowledges Ambroz Bizjak as the original
reporter of CVE-2013-0791. The CVE-2013-4236 issue was found by David
Gibson of Red Hat.

This updated package provides updated components that include fixes
for various security issues. These issues have no security impact on
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor itself, however. The
security fixes included in this update address the following CVE
numbers :

CVE-2013-4854 (bind issue)

CVE-2012-6544, CVE-2013-2146, CVE-2013-2206, CVE-2013-2224,
CVE-2013-2232, and CVE-2013-2237 (kernel issues)

This update also contains the fixes from the following errata :

* vdsm: RHSA-2013:1155 and RHBA-2013:1158

Users of the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor are advised
to upgrade to this updated package, which corrects these issues.
