    Synopsis:          Important: rhvm-setup-plugins security and bug fix update
    Advisory ID:       RHSA-2019:1046-01
    Product:           Red Hat Virtualization
    Advisory URL:
    Issue date:        2019-05-08
    CVE Names:         CVE-2018-3639 
    1. Summary:
    An update for rhvm-setup-plugins is now available for Red Hat
    Virtualization Engine 4.3.
    Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
    of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
    which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
    from the CVE link(s) in the References section.
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    RHV-M 4.3 - noarch
    3. Description:
    The rhvm-setup-plugins package adds functionality exclusive only to Red Hat
    Virtualization Manager, and is not available for the upstream ovirt-engine.
    It includes the configuration of the Red Hat Support plugin, copying
    downstream-only artifacts to the ISO domain, and links to the knowledgebase
    and other support material.
    Security Fix(es):
    * An industry-wide issue was found in the way many modern microprocessor
    designs have implemented speculative execution of instructions (a commonly
    used performance optimization). There are three primary variants of the
    issue which differ in the way the speculative execution can be exploited.
    Variant CVE-2017-5754 relies on the fact that, on impacted microprocessors,
    during speculative execution of instruction permission faults, exception
    generation triggered by a faulting access is suppressed until the
    retirement of the whole instruction block. In a combination with the fact
    that memory accesses may populate the cache even when the block is being
    dropped and never committed (executed), an unprivileged local attacker
    could use this flaw to read privileged (kernel space) memory by conducting
    targeted cache side-channel attacks. Note: CVE-2017-5754 affects Intel
    x86-64 microprocessors. AMD x86-64 microprocessors are not affected by this
    issue. (CVE-2017-5754)
    Bug Fix(es):
    * [CVE-2017-5754] Variant3: POWER {qemu-kvm-rhev} Add machine type variants
    * add POWER 9 to the 4.2 cluster level (BZ#1574494)
