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

1. Summary:

An update for rhev-hypervisor7 is now available for RHEV 3.X Hypervisor and
Agents for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and RHEV 3.X Hypervisor and Agents
Extended Lifecycle Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

RHEL 7-based RHEV-H ELS - noarch
RHEV Hypervisor for RHEL-6 ELS - noarch

3. Description:

The rhev-hypervisor7 package provides a Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization
Hypervisor ISO disk image. The Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor
is a dedicated Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor. It includes
everything necessary to run and manage virtual machines: A subset of the
Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating environment and the Red Hat Enterprise
Virtualization Agent.

Security Fix(es):

* An industry-wide issue was found in the way many modern microprocessor
designs have implemented speculative execution of Load & Store instructions
(a commonly used performance optimization). It relies on the presence of a
precisely-defined instruction sequence in the privileged code as well as
the fact that memory read from address to which a recent memory write has
occurred may see an older value and subsequently cause an update into the
microprocessor's data cache even for speculatively executed instructions
that never actually commit (retire). As a result, an unprivileged attacker
could use this flaw to read privileged memory by conducting targeted cache
side-channel attacks. (CVE-2018-3639, x86 AMD)

Red Hat would like to thank Ken Johnson (Microsoft Security Response
Center) and Jann Horn (Google Project Zero) for reporting this issue.
