=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for rhvm-appliance is now available for Red Hat Virtualization 4
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Virtualization 4 Hypervisor for RHEL 7 - noarch
Red Hat Virtualization 4 Management Agent for RHEL 7 Hosts - noarch

3. Description:

The RHV-M Virtual Appliance automates the process of installing and
configuring the Red Hat Virtualization Manager. The appliance is available
to download as an OVA file from the Customer Portal.

Security Fix(es):

* Modern operating systems implement virtualization of physical memory to
efficiently use available system resources and provide inter-domain
protection through access control and isolation. The L1TF issue was found
in the way the x86 microprocessor designs have implemented speculative
execution of instructions (a commonly used performance optimisation) in
combination with handling of page-faults caused by terminated virtual to
physical address resolving process. As a result, an unprivileged attacker
could use this flaw to read privileged memory of the kernel or other
processes and/or cross guest/host boundaries to read host memory by
conducting targeted cache side-channel attacks. (CVE-2018-3620,
CVE-2018-3646)

* A flaw named SegmentSmack was found in the way the Linux kernel handled
specially crafted TCP packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
trigger time and calculation expensive calls to tcp_collapse_ofo_queue()
and tcp_prune_ofo_queue() functions by sending specially modified packets
within ongoing TCP sessions which could lead to a CPU saturation and hence
a denial of service on the system. Maintaining the denial of service
condition requires continuous two-way TCP sessions to a reachable open
port, thus the attacks cannot be performed using spoofed IP addresses.
(CVE-2018-5390)

Red Hat would like to thank Intel OSSIRT (Intel.com) for reporting
CVE-2018-3620 and CVE-2018-3646 and Juha-Matti Tilli (Aalto University,
