[SECURITY] Fedora 7 Update: kvm-36-8.fc7



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-1973
2008-02-25 22:15:01
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : kvm
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 36
Release     : 8.fc7
URL         : http://kvm.sf.net
Summary     : Kernel-based Virtual Machine
Description :
KVM (for Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution
for Linux on x86 hardware.

Using KVM, one can run multiple virtual machines running unmodified Linux
or Windows images. Each virtual machine has private virtualized hardware:
a network card, disk, graphics adapter, etc.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Ian Jackson discovered that accesses beyond end of qemu emulated disk devices
can result in accesses to emulator's virtual memory space accesses and thus can
allow user with sufficient privilege in guest (root, as this would need
modification to kernel's driver) to break out of VM.    http://marc.info/?l
