FEDORA-2017-8db9c497f9 created by crobinso 2 years ago for Fedora 27
stable
  • Fix ppc64 KVM failure (bz #1501936)
  • CVE-2017-15038: 9p: information disclosure when reading extended attributes (bz #1499111)
  • CVE-2017-15268: potential memory exhaustion via websock connection to VNC (bz #1496882)

qemu-pr-helper didn't work due to a change in the libmultipath/libmpathpersist APIs exposed by device-mapper-multipath-devel. This has been fixed now. Other small changes to the qemu-pr-helper service are included.


Backport qemu-pr-helper from QEMU 2.11. This daemon allows unprivileged users (who have access to the daemon) to use persistent reservation commands on both regular disks and multipath block devices.
