openSUSE Security Update : Hyper-V (openSUSE-SU-2012:1526-1)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 74818
SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update fixes the following issues for Hyper-V: The source code without this patch caused hv_kvp_daemon to exit when it processed a spoofed Netlink packet which has been sent from an untrusted local user. Now Netlink messages with a non-zero nl_pid source address are ignored and a warning is printed into the syslog.
This fixes the previous change from CVE-2012-2669.
SolutionUpdate the affected Hyper-V packages.
