Gmane
From: Pat Riehecky <riehecky-13hema8v3vg <at> public.gmane.org>
Subject: Security ERRATA Moderate: xorg-x11-drv-qxl on SL6.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Friday 1st February 2013 15:47:25 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Synopsis:          Moderate: xorg-x11-drv-qxl security update
Issue Date:        2013-01-31
CVE Numbers:       CVE-2013-0241
--

A flaw was found in the way the host's qemu-kvm qxl driver and the guest's
X.Org qxl driver interacted when a SPICE connection terminated. A user 
able to
initiate a SPICE connection to a guest could use this flaw to make the
guest
temporarily unavailable or, potentially (if the sysctl 
kernel.softlockup_panic
variable was set to "1" in the guest), crash the guest. (CVE-2013-0241)

All running X.Org server instances using the qxl driver must be 
restarted for
this update to take effect.
