SuSE 11.2 Security Update : hyper-v (SAT Patch Number 6431)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 64154


The remote SuSE 11 host is missing a security update.


The Hyper-V userland daemon was updated to match the current kernel Hyper-V feature level.

It brings key-value-pair storage that can be queried by the kernel via the netlink interface and can pass information out to the Hyper-V hypervisor.

The netlink query code was adjusted to only allow the Linux kernel to access it via netlink messages. (CVE-2012-2669)


Apply SAT patch number 6431.
