RHEL 6 : rhev-hypervisor6 (RHSA-2014:0815)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 79108
SynopsisThe remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAn updated rhev-hypervisor6 package that fixes several security issues is now available.
The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.
The rhev-hypervisor6 package provides a Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor ISO disk image. The Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor is a dedicated Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor. It includes everything necessary to run and manage virtual machines: a subset of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating environment and the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Agent.
Note: Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor is only available for the Intel 64 and AMD64 architectures with virtualization extensions.
A flaw was found in the way GnuTLS parsed session IDs from ServerHello messages of the TLS/SSL handshake. A malicious server could use this flaw to send an excessively long session ID value, which would trigger a buffer overflow in a connecting TLS/SSL client application using GnuTLS, causing the client application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-3466)
It was discovered that the asn1_get_bit_der() function of the libtasn1 library incorrectly reported the length of ASN.1-encoded data.
Specially crafted ASN.1 input could cause an application using libtasn1 to perform an out-of-bounds access operation, causing the application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.
Multiple incorrect buffer boundary check issues were discovered in libtasn1. Specially crafted ASN.1 input could cause an application using libtasn1 to crash. (CVE-2014-3467)
Multiple NULL pointer dereference flaws were found in libtasn1's asn1_read_value() function. Specially crafted ASN.1 input could cause an application using libtasn1 to crash, if the application used the aforementioned function in a certain way. (CVE-2014-3469)
Red Hat would like to thank GnuTLS upstream for reporting CVE-2014-3466, CVE-2014-3468, CVE-2014-3467, and CVE-2014-3469.
Upstream acknowledges Joonas Kuorilehto of Codenomicon as the original reporter of CVE-2014-3466.
