high Nessus Plugin ID 89498
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 Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

- CVE-2015-8567: net: vmxnet3: host memory leakage (bz #1289818) * CVE-2016-1922: i386: avoid NULL pointer dereference (bz #1292766) * CVE-2015-8613: buffer overflow in megasas_ctrl_get_info (bz #1284008) * CVE-2015-8743: ne2000: OOB memory access in ioport r/w functions (bz #1294787)

Solution

Update the affected qemu package.
