1. Summary:

An update for imgbased, redhat-release-virtualization-host, and
redhat-virtualization-host is now available for Red Hat Virtualization 4
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.

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:

RHEL 8-based RHEV-H for RHEV 4 (build requirements) - noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Virtualization 4 Hypervisor for RHEL 8 - x86_64

3. Description:

The redhat-virtualization-host packages provide the Red Hat Virtualization
Host. These packages include redhat-release-virtualization-host,
ovirt-node, and rhev-hypervisor. Red Hat Virtualization Hosts (RHVH) are
installed using a special build of Red Hat Enterprise Linux with only the
packages required to host virtual machines. RHVH features a Cockpit user
interface for monitoring the host's resources and performing administrative
tasks.

Security Fix(es):

* glib: integer overflow in g_bytes_new function on 64-bit platforms due to
an implicit cast from 64 bits to 32 bits (CVE-2021-27219)

* kernel: userspace applications can misuse the KVM API to cause a write of
16 bytes at an offset up to 32 GB from vcpu->run (CVE-2021-3501)

* polkit: local privilege escalation using
polkit_system_bus_name_get_creds_sync() (CVE-2021-3560)

* hw: vt-d related privilege escalation (CVE-2020-24489)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
score, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in
the References section.

Bug Fix(es):

* Previously, systemtap dependencies were not included in the RHV-H
channel. Therefore, systemtap could not be installed.
In this release, the systemtap dependencies have been included in the
channel, resolving the issue. (BZ#1903997)

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
