Posted Sep 5, 2017
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-2628-01 - KVM is a full virtualization solution for Linux on a variety of architectures. The qemu-kvm-rhev packages provide the user-space component for running virtual machines that use KVM in environments managed by Red Hat products. Security Fix: An assertion-failure flaw was found in the Network Block Device server's initial connection negotiation, where the I/O co-routine was undefined. This could crash the qemu-nbd server if a client sent unexpected data during connection negotiation. A remote user or process could use this flaw to crash the qemu-nbd server resulting in denial of service.
