-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Update Notification FEDORA-2012-8592 2012-05-29 21:36:09 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Name : qemu Product : Fedora 16 Version : 0.15.1 Release : 5.fc16 URL : http://www.qemu.org/ Summary : QEMU is a FAST! processor emulator Description : QEMU is a generic and open source processor emulator which achieves a good emulation speed by using dynamic translation. QEMU has two operating modes: * Full system emulation. In this mode, QEMU emulates a full system (for example a PC), including a processor and various peripherials. It can be used to launch different Operating Systems without rebooting the PC or to debug system code. * User mode emulation. In this mode, QEMU can launch Linux processes compiled for one CPU on another CPU. As QEMU requires no host kernel patches to run, it is safe and easy to use. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Update Information: * CVE-2012-0029 e1000 buffer overflow (bz 825895, bz 772075) * virtio-blk: refuse SG_IO requests with scsi=off (bz 826042) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ChangeLog: * Tue May 29 2012 Cole Robinson <crobinso@redhat.com> - 0.15.1-5 - CVE-2012-0029 e1000 buffer overflow (bz 783984, bz 772075) - virtio-blk: refuse SG_IO requests with scsi=off (bz 826042) * Mon Jan 30 2012 Justin M.
