medium Nessus Plugin ID 89634
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-2015-7549: pci: NULL pointer dereference issue (bz #1291138) * CVE-2015-8558: DoS by infinite loop in ehci_advance_state (bz #1291309) * CVE-2015-8666:

Solution

Update the affected qemu package.
