    Redhat & CentOS Security Updates Issued for "VENOM"

    There has been an announcement from Crowdstrike and subsequently from Redhat and Xen to say that there has been a significant vulnerability discovered in QEMU/KVM and XEN.


    If you are running any of these technologies on your servers, then you need to take steps to prevent your servers being compromised.


    The vulnerability allows a VPS user to escape from one VM and enter another on the same machine.
