Patch  oval:org.mitre.oval:def:28198
CESA-2015:1003 -- centos 5 kvm  

KVM is a full virtualization solution for Linux on AMD64 and Intel 64 systems. An out-of-bounds memory access flaw was found in the way QEMU"s virtual Floppy Disk Controller handled FIFO buffer access while processing certain FDC commands. A privileged guest user could use this flaw to crash the guest or, potentially, execute arbitrary code on the host with the privileges of the host"s QEMU process corresponding to the guest. Red Hat would like to thank Jason Geffner of CrowdStrike for reporting this issue. All kvm users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. Note: The procedure in the Solution section must be performed before this update will take effect.
