1. Summary:

An update for redhat-release-virtualization-host and
redhat-virtualization-host is now available for Red Hat Virtualization 4.2
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.6 EUS.

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 4.2 Hypervisor for RHEL 7.6 EUS - noarch, x86_64

3. Description:

The redhat-virtualization-host packages provide the Red Hat Virtualization
Host. These packages include redhat-release-virtualization-host,
ovirt-node, and rhev-hypervisor. Red Hat Virtualization Hosts (RHVH) are
installed using a special build of Red Hat Enterprise Linux with only the
packages required to host virtual machines. RHVH features a Cockpit user
interface for monitoring the host's resources and performing administrative
tasks.

The ovirt-node-ng packages provide the Red Hat Virtualization Host. These
packages include redhat-release-virtualization-host, ovirt-node, and
rhev-hypervisor. Red Hat Virtualization Hosts (RHVH) are installed using a
special build of Red Hat Enterprise Linux with only the packages required
to host virtual machines. RHVH features a Cockpit user interface for
monitoring the host's resources and performing administrative tasks.

Security Fix(es):

* A flaw was found in the implementation of the "fill buffer", a mechanism
used by modern CPUs when a cache-miss is made on L1 CPU cache. If an
attacker can generate a load operation that would create a page fault, the
execution will continue speculatively with incorrect data from the fill
buffer while the data is fetched from higher level caches. This response
time can be measured to infer data in the fill buffer. (CVE-2018-12130)

* Modern Intel microprocessors implement hardware-level micro-optimizations
to improve the performance of writing data back to CPU caches. The write
operation is split into STA (STore Address) and STD (STore Data)
sub-operations. These sub-operations allow the processor to hand-off
address generation logic into these sub-operations for optimized writes.
Both of these sub-operations write to a shared distributed processor
structure called the 'processor store buffer'. As a result, an unprivileged
attacker could use this flaw to read private data resident within the CPU's
processor store buffer. (CVE-2018-12126)

* Microprocessors use a ‘load port’ subcomponent to perform load operations
from memory or IO. During a load operation, the load port receives data
from the memory or IO subsystem and then provides the data to the CPU
registers and operations in the CPU’s pipelines. Stale load operations
results are stored in the 'load port' table until overwritten by newer
operations. Certain load-port operations triggered by an attacker can be
used to reveal data about previous stale requests leaking data back to the
attacker via a timing side-channel. (CVE-2018-12127)

* Uncacheable memory on some microprocessors utilizing speculative
execution may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information
disclosure via a side channel with local access. (CVE-2019-11091)
