Medium Nessus Plugin ID 42047
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionQemu 0.9.1 and earlier does not perform range checks for block device read or write requests, which allows guest host users with root privileges to access arbitrary memory and escape the virtual machine.
The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.
SolutionUpdate the affected dkms-kqemu, qemu and / or qemu-img packages.
