Scientific Linux Security Update : spice-gtk on SL7.x x86_64 (20190806)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 128263


The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


The libgovirt packages contain a library that allows applications to use the oVirt Representational State Transfer (REST) API to list virtual machines (VMs) managed by an oVirt instance. The library is also used to get the connection parameters needed to establish a connection to the VMs using Simple Protocol For Independent Computing Environments (SPICE) or Virtual Network Computing (VNC).

The spice-vdagent packages provide a SPICE agent for Linux guests.

The virt-viewer packages provide Virtual Machine Viewer, which is a lightweight interface for interacting with the graphical display of a virtualized guest.

Security Fix(es) :

- spice-client: Insufficient encoding checks for LZ can cause different integer/buffer overflows (CVE-2018-10893)


Update the affected packages.
