are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Low 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. The qemu-kvm-rhev package
provides the user-space component for running virtual machines using
KVM in environments managed by Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization
Manager.

An information leak flaw was found in the way QEMU's VGA emulator
accessed frame buffer memory for high resolution displays. A
privileged guest user could use this flaw to leak memory contents of
the host to the guest by setting the display to use a high resolution
in the guest. (CVE-2014-3615)

This issue was discovered by Laszlo Ersek of Red Hat.

This update also fixes the following bug :

* This update fixes a bug that caused the relative path to a backing
file image to be switched to an absolute path during a live merge
(block-commit). (BZ#1122925)

All users of qemu-kvm-rhev are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues.
After installing this update, shut down all running virtual machines.
Once all virtual machines have shut down, start them again for this
update to take effect."
