Subject: Security ERRATA Important: kvm on SL5.x x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Thursday 7th March 2013 22:17:25 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Synopsis:          Important: kvm security update
Issue Date:        2013-03-07
CVE Numbers:       CVE-2012-6075
--

A flaw was found in the way QEMU-KVM emulated the e1000 network interface
card when the host was configured to accept jumbo network frames, and a
guest using the e1000 emulated driver was not. A remote attacker could use
this flaw to crash the guest or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with
root privileges in the guest. (CVE-2012-6075)

Note that the procedure in the Solution section must be performed before
this update will take effect.
