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.

A flaw was found in the way concurrent access to the clients ring
buffer was performed in the spice-server library. A remote user able
to initiate a SPICE connection to a guest could use this flaw to crash
the guest. (CVE-2013-4130)
