Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.

Description :

An updated rhev-hypervisor package that fixes one security issue and
several bugs is now available.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
moderate 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-hypervisor 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.

A flaw was found that allowed napi_reuse_skb() to be called on VLAN
(virtual LAN) packets. An attacker on the local network could trigger
this flaw by sending specially crafted packets to a target system,
possibly causing a denial of service. (CVE-2011-1576)

Red Hat would like to thank Ryan Sweat for reporting CVE-2011-1576.
