Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

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

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the Linux
kernel's networking implementation handled logging while processing
certain invalid packets coming in via a VxLAN interface. A remote
attacker could use this flaw to crash the system by sending a
specially crafted packet to such an interface. (CVE-2014-3535)

Two integer overflow flaws were found in the QEMU block driver for
QCOW version 1 disk images. A user able to alter the QEMU disk image
files loaded by a guest could use either of these flaws to corrupt
QEMU process memory on the host, which could potentially result in
arbitrary code execution on the host with the privileges of the QEMU
process. (CVE-2014-0222, CVE-2014-0223)

Red Hat would like to thank NSA for reporting CVE-2014-0222 and

This update also fixes the following bug :

* Previously, an updated version of Qlogic firmware was not supported
in the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor 6.5 image and an
error message returned when users were using a newer version of Qlogic
firmware. This update includes the latest Qlogic firmware package in
the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor 6.5 image so no
firmware errors are returned. (BZ#1135780)

This updated package also 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-2012-6647, CVE-2013-7339, CVE-2014-2672, CVE-2014-2678,
CVE-2014-2706, CVE-2014-2851, CVE-2014-3144, CVE-2014-3145,
CVE-2014-0205, CVE-2014-3917, and CVE-2014-4667 (kernel issues)

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