Description

Updated kvm packages that fix one security issue, multiple bugs, and add enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for Linux on AMD64 and Intel 64 systems. KVM is a Linux kernel module built for the standard Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernel.

A flaw was found in the way QEMU-KVM handled erroneous data provided by the Linux virtio-net driver, used by guest operating systems. Due to a deficiency in the TSO (TCP segment offloading) implementation, a guest's virtio-net driver would transmit improper data to a certain QEMU-KVM process on the host, causing the guest to crash. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send specially crafted data to a target guest system, causing that guest to crash. (CVE-2010-0741)

Additionally, these updated packages include numerous bug fixes and enhancements. Refer to the KVM chapter of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5 Technical Notes for details :

http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5.5/html/ Technical_Notes/kvm.html

All KVM users should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue as well as fixing the bugs and adding the enhancements noted in the Technical Notes. Note: The procedure in the Solution section must be performed before this update will take effect.
