-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Security vulnerabilities have been discovered and corrected in VNC server of kvm version 79 and earlier, which could lead to denial-of-service attacks (CVE-2008-2382), and make it easier for remote crackers to guess the VNC password (CVE-2008-5714).
The updated packages have been patched to prevent this.
