 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:138
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : x11-driver-video-qxl
 Date    : April 10, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated x11-driver-video-qxl package fixes security vulnerability:
 
 A flaw was found in the way the host's qemu-kvm qxl driver and
 the guest's X.Org qxl driver interacted when a SPICE connection
 terminated. A user able to initiate a SPICE connection to a guest
 could use this flaw to make the guest temporarily unavailable or,
 potentially (if the sysctl kernel.softlockup_panic variable was set
 to 1 in the guest), crash the guest (CVE-2013-0241).
