Synopsis:          Moderate: qemu-kvm-rhev security and bug fix update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2017:2628-01
Product:           Red Hat Virtualization
Advisory URL:      https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2017:2628

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for qemu-kvm-rhev is now available for RHEV 3.X Hypervisor and
Agents for RHEL-7 and RHEV 4.X RHEV-H and Agents for RHEL-7.

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.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

RHEV-H and VDSM for 7 Hosts - ppc64le, x86_64

3. Description:

KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for
Linux on a variety of architectures. The qemu-kvm-rhev packages provide the
user-space component for running virtual machines that use KVM in
environments managed by Red Hat products.

Security Fix(es):

* An assertion-failure flaw was found in the Network Block Device (NBD)
server's initial connection negotiation, where the I/O co-routine was
undefined. This could crash the qemu-nbd server if a client sent unexpected
data during connection negotiation. A remote user or process could use this
flaw to crash the qemu-nbd server resulting in denial of service.
(CVE-2017-7539)

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:

https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

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.

5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
