Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0898
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:0898.

KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for
Linux on AMD64 and Intel 64 systems. KVM is a Linux kernel module built for
the standard Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernel.

A flaw was found in the way QEMU-KVM handled the reloading of fs and gs
segment registers when they had invalid selectors. A privileged host user
with access to /dev/kvm could use this flaw to crash the host (denial of
service). (CVE-2010-3698)

All KVM users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue. Note: The procedure in the Solution
section must be performed before this update will take effect.

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
