Fedora Core 6 : xen-3.0.3-8.fc6 (2007-343)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 24882
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


A flaw was found affecting the VNC server code in QEMU. On a fully virtualized guest VM, where qemu monitor mode is enabled, a user who had access to the VNC server could gain the ability to read arbitrary files as root in the host filesystem. (CVE-2007-0998)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected packages.
