Description

An update for spice-server is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. 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.

The Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environments (SPICE) is a remote display protocol for virtual environments. SPICE users can access a virtualized desktop or server from the local system or any system with network access to the server. SPICE is used in Red Hat Enterprise Linux for viewing virtualized guests running on the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor or on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisors.

Security Fix(es) :

  • A vulnerability was discovered in spice in the server

Security Fix(es) :

* A vulnerability was discovered in spice in the server's protocol
handling. An authenticated attacker could send crafted messages to the
spice server causing a heap overflow leading to a crash or possible
code execution. (CVE-2016-9577)

* A vulnerability was discovered in spice in the server's protocol
handling. An attacker able to connect to the spice server could send
crafted messages which would cause the process to crash.
(CVE-2016-9578)

These issues were discovered by Frediano Ziglio (Red Hat)."
