Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager 3.3 is now available.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System
(CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is
available from the CVE link in the References section.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager is a visual tool for
centrally managing collections of virtual servers running Red Hat
Enterprise Linux and Microsoft Windows. This package also includes the
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager API, a set of scriptable
commands that give administrators the ability to perform queries and
operations on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager.

A flaw was found in the way Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager
relayed SPICE connection information to remote-viewer when a native
SPICE client invocation method was used. As a result, remote-viewer
attempted an insecure connection first and only switched to a secure
connection when requested by the SPICE server. An attacker able to
intercept the SPICE connection could use this flaw to conduct
man-in-the-middle attacks. (CVE-2013-6434)

Red Hat would like to thank Michael Samuel of Amcom for reporting this
issue.

This update also fixes several bugs and adds various enhancements.
Documentation for these changes will be available shortly from the
Technical Notes document linked to in the References section.

All Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager users are advised to
upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues and add
these enhancements.
