3. Description:

The rhev-hypervisor 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):

* A use-after-free flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Datagram
Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) implementation freed SKB (socket buffer)
resources for a DCCP_PKT_REQUEST packet when the IPV6_RECVPKTINFO option is
set on the socket. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to alter
the kernel memory, allowing them to escalate their privileges on the
system. (CVE-2017-6074)

Red Hat would like to thank Andrey Konovalov (Google) for reporting this
issue.

Note: Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor is only available for
the Intel 64 and AMD64 architectures with virtualization extensions.
