The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
Security Fix(es) :
- Quick emulator(Qemu) built with the virtio framework is
vulnerable to an unbounded memory allocation issue. It
was found that a malicious guest user could submit more
requests than the virtqueue size permits. Processing a
request allocates a VirtQueueElement and therefore
causes unbounded memory allocation on the host
controlled by the guest. (CVE-2016-5403)
