Synopsis: Moderate: xorg-x11-drv-qxl security update Issue Date: 2013-01-31 CVE Numbers: CVE-2013-0241 -- A flaw was found in the way the host's qemu-kvm qxl driver and the guest's X.Org qxl driver interacted when a SPICE connection terminated. A user able to initiate a SPICE connection to a guest could use this flaw to make the guest temporarily unavailable or, potentially (if the sysctl kernel.softlockup_panic variable was set to "1" in the guest), crash the guest. (CVE-2013-0241) All running X.Org server instances using the qxl driver must be restarted for this update to take effect. -- SL6 x86_64 xorg-x11-drv-qxl-0.0.14-14.el6_3.x86_64.rpm xorg-x11-drv-qxl-debuginfo-0.0.14-14.el6_3.x86_64.rpm i386 xorg-x11-drv-qxl-0.0.14-14.el6_3.i686.rpm xorg-x11-drv-qxl-debuginfo-0.0.14-14.el6_3.i686.rpm - Scientific Linux Development Team
