The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
Security Fix(es) :
- A memory allocation flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer
overflow, was found in spice's smartcard interaction,
which runs under the QEMU-KVM context on the host. A
user connecting to a guest VM using spice could
potentially use this flaw to crash the QEMU-KVM process
or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
host's QEMU-KVM process. (CVE-2016-0749)
- A memory access flaw was found in the way spice handled
certain guests using crafted primary surface parameters.
A user in a guest could use this flaw to read from and
write to arbitrary memory locations on the host.
The CVE-2016-0749 issue was discovered by Jing Zhao (Red Hat) and the
CVE-2016-2150 issue was discovered by Frediano Ziglio (Red Hat).
