   An update that fixes one vulnerability is now available.


   The Hyper-V userland daemon was updated to match the
   current kernel Hyper-V  feature level.

   It brings key-value-pair storage that can be queried by the
   kernel via the  netlink interface and can pass information
   out to the Hyper-V hypervisor.

   The netlink query code was adjusted to only allow the Linux
   kernel to  access it via netlink messages (CVE-2012-2669).
