1. Summary:

An update for powerpc-utils-python is now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 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:

3. Description:

The powerpc-utils-python packages provide Python-based utilities for
maintaining and servicing PowerPC systems.

Security Fix(es):

* It was found that the amsvis command of the powerpc-utils-python package
did not verify unpickled data before processing it. This could allow an
attacker who can connect to an amsvis server process (or cause an amsvis
client process to connect to them) to execute arbitrary code as the user
running the amsvis process. (CVE-2014-8165)

This issue was discovered by Dhiru Kholia of Red Hat Product Security.
