Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-0422-01 - 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 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 the Linux kernel's KVM hypervisor implementation emulated the syscall instruction for 32-bit guests. An unprivileged guest user could trigger this flaw to crash the guest.

3. Description:

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 the Linux kernel's KVM hypervisor
implementation emulated the syscall instruction for 32-bit guests. An
unprivileged guest user could trigger this flaw to crash the guest.
(CVE-2012-0045)

A divide-by-zero flaw was found in the Linux kernel's igmp_heard_query()
function. An attacker able to send certain IGMP (Internet Group Management
Protocol) packets to a target system could use this flaw to cause a denial
of service. (CVE-2012-0207)

Red Hat would like to thank Stephan Bärwolf for reporting CVE-2012-0045,
and Simon McVittie for reporting CVE-2012-0207.

This updated package provides updated components that include fixes for
various security issues. These issues have no security impact on Red Hat
Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor itself, however. The security fixes
included in this update address the following CVE numbers:

CVE-2011-4077, CVE-2011-4081, CVE-2011-4132, CVE-2011-4347, CVE-2011-4594,
CVE-2011-4611, CVE-2011-4622 and CVE-2012-0038 (kernel issues)

CVE-2012-0444 (libvorbis issue)

CVE-2012-0841 (libxml2 issue)

This update also fixes the following bug:

* The rhev-hypervisor5 and rhev-hypervisor6 packages sometimes updated the
symbolic links in the /usr/share/rhev-hypervisor/ directory with incorrect
targets. The packages have been updated, they now always update the
symbolic links with the correct targets. (BZ#784706)

Users of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor are advised to
upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
