RHEL 8 : virt:rhel (RHSA-2019:3345)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 130529

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9

Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

An update for the virt:rhel module is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Low. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link (s) in the References section.

Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) offers a full virtualization solution for Linux on numerous hardware platforms. The virt:rhel module contains packages which provide user-space components used to run virtual machines using KVM. The packages also provide APIs for managing and interacting with the virtualized systems.

Security Fix(es) :

* ntfs-3g: heap-based buffer overflow leads to local root privilege escalation (CVE-2019-9755)

* QEMU: slirp: information leakage in tcp_emu() due to uninitialized stack variables (CVE-2019-9824)

* QEMU: qxl: NULL pointer dereference while releasing spice resources (CVE-2019-12155)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in the References section.
