Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.

Description :

An updated rhev-hypervisor6 package that fixes one security issue is
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor 3.2.

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.

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.

Important: This update is an emergency security fix being provided
outside the scope of the published support policy for Red Hat
Enterprise Virtualization listed in the References section. In
accordance with the support policy for Red Hat Enterprise
Virtualization, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor 3.2 will
not receive future security updates.

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

An information disclosure flaw was found in the way OpenSSL handled
TLS and DTLS Heartbeat Extension packets. A malicious TLS or DTLS
client or server could send a specially crafted TLS or DTLS Heartbeat
packet to disclose a limited portion of memory per request from a
connected client or server. Note that the disclosed portions of memory
could potentially include sensitive information such as private keys.
(CVE-2014-0160)

Red Hat would like to thank the OpenSSL project for reporting this
issue. Upstream acknowledges Neel Mehta of Google Security as the
original reporter.

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