Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : x11-driver-video-qxl (MDVSA-2013:138)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 66150
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionUpdated x11-driver-video-qxl package fixes security vulnerability :
A flaw was found in the way the host's qemu-kvm qxl driver and the guest's X.Org qxl driver interacted when a SPICE connection terminated. A user able to initiate a SPICE connection to a guest could use this flaw to make the guest temporarily unavailable or, potentially (if the sysctl kernel.softlockup_panic variable was set to 1 in the guest), crash the guest (CVE-2013-0241).
SolutionUpdate the affected x11-driver-video-qxl package.
