Scientific Linux Security Update : qemu-kvm on SL6.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 65092
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA flaw was found in the way QEMU-KVM emulated the e1000 network interface card when the host was configured to accept jumbo network frames, and a 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 this update, shut down all running virtual machines.
