Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'netcf'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The netcf packages contain a library for
modifying the network configuration of a system. Network configuration is expressed
in a platform-independent XML format, which netcf translates into changes to the

name could cause an application using netcf (such as the libvirt daemon) to
crash. (CVE-2014-8119)

This issue was discovered by Hao Liu of Red Hat.

The netcf packages have been upgraded to upstream version 0.2.8, which
provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version.

these bugs and add these enhancements.

Affected Software/OS:
