3. Description:

KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for
Linux on AMD64 and Intel 64 systems. The qemu-kvm-rhev package provides the
user-space component for running virtual machines using KVM.

A heap-based buffer overflow issue was found in the QEMU emulator's VNC
display driver. It could occur while refreshing the VNC server's display
surface using the vnc_refresh_server_surface() routine. A privileged guest
user could use this flaw to corrupt the heap memory and crash the QEMU
process instance, or to potentially use it to execute arbitrary code on the
host. (CVE-2015-5225)

Red Hat would like to thank Mr Qinghao Tang from QIHU 360 Inc. and Mr
Zuozhi from Alibaba Inc. for reporting this issue.

All qemu-kvm-rhev users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. 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.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
