Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 2630-1 - Matt Tait discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled the virtual PCNET driver. A malicious guest could use this issue to cause a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code on the host as the user running the QEMU process. In the default installation, when QEMU is used with libvirt, attackers would be isolated by the libvirt AppArmor profile. Kurt Seifried discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled certain temporary files. A local attacker could use this issue to cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Details:

Matt Tait discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled the virtual PCNET
driver. A malicious guest could use this issue to cause a denial of
service, or possibly execute arbitrary code on the host as the user running
the QEMU process. In the default installation, when QEMU is used with
libvirt, attackers would be isolated by the libvirt AppArmor profile.
(CVE-2015-3209)

Kurt Seifried discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled certain temporary
files. A local attacker could use this issue to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2015-4037)

Jan Beulich discovered that the QEMU Xen code incorrectly restricted write
access to the host MSI message data field. A malicious guest could use this
issue to cause a denial of service. This issue only applied to Ubuntu 14.04
LTS, Ubuntu 14.10 and Ubuntu 15.04. (CVE-2015-4103)

Jan Beulich discovered that the QEMU Xen code incorrectly restricted access
to the PCI MSI mask bits. A malicious guest could use this issue to cause a
denial of service. This issue only applied to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Ubuntu
14.10 and Ubuntu 15.04. (CVE-2015-4104)

Jan Beulich discovered that the QEMU Xen code incorrectly handled MSI-X
