Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0632
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:0632.

The Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environments (SPICE) is a
remote display protocol used in Red Hat Enterprise Linux for viewing
virtualized guests running on the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM)
hypervisor, or on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor.

The qspice-client package provides the client side of the SPICE protocol.

A race condition was found in the way the SPICE Mozilla Firefox plug-in and
the SPICE client communicated. A local attacker could use this flaw to
trick the plug-in and the SPICE client into communicating over an
attacker-controlled socket, possibly gaining access to authentication
details, or resulting in a man-in-the-middle attack on the SPICE
connection. (CVE-2010-2792)

Users of qspice-client should upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch to correct this issue.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
