Updated spice-xpi packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The spice-xpi packages provide the Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environments (SPICE) extension for Mozilla that allows the SPICE client to be used from a web browser.
- Previously, spice-xpi did not check port validity. Consequently, if an invalid port number was provided, spice-xpi sent it to the client. With this update, spice-xpi checks validity of provided port numbers, warns about invalid ports, and does not run the client if both ports are invalid.
- Previously, the disconnect() function failed to terminate a SPICE client when invoked. The underlying source code has been modified and disconnect() now works as expected in the described scenario.
All users of spice-xpi are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
