An update for qemu-kvm-rhev is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux
OpenStack Platform 5.0 (Icehouse) for RHEL 6.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 5.0 (Icehouse) for RHEL 6 - x86_64

3. Description:

KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for
Linux on AMD64 and Intel 64 systems. The qemu-kvm-rhev package provides the
user-space component for running virtual machines using KVM in environments
managed by Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager.

Security Fix(es):

* Quick emulator(Qemu) built with the virtio framework is vulnerable to an
unbounded memory allocation issue. It was found that a malicious guest user
could submit more requests than the virtqueue size permits. Processing a
request allocates a VirtQueueElement and therefore causes unbounded memory
allocation on the host controlled by the guest. (CVE-2016-5403)

Red Hat would like to thank hongzhenhao (Marvel Team) for reporting this
issue.

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:

all virtual machines have shut down, start them again for this update to
take effect.
