Scientific Linux Security Update : xen on SL5.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 65090
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA flaw was found in the way QEMU emulated the e1000 network interface card when the host was configured to accept jumbo network frames, and a fully- virtualized guest using the e1000 emulated driver was not. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the guest or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with root privileges in the guest.
After installing the updated packages, all running fully-virtualized guests must be restarted for this update to take effect.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
