SUSE SLED11 / SLES11 Security Update : KVM (SUSE-SU-2015:1152-1)

high Nessus Plugin ID 84443
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

KVM was updated to fix two security issues :

CVE-2015-3209: Heap overflow in qemu pcnet controller allowing guest to host escape. (bsc#932770)

CVE-2015-4037: Predictable directory names for smb configuration.
