Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-0334-01 - KVM is a full virtualization solution for Linux on a variety of architectures. The qemu-kvm-rhev packages provide the user-space component for running virtual machines that use KVM in environments managed by Red Hat products. Security Fix: Quick emulator built with the Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA emulator support is vulnerable to an out-of-bounds access issue. It could occur while copying VGA data via bitblt copy in backward mode. A privileged user inside a guest could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process resulting in DoS or potentially execute arbitrary code on the host with privileges of QEMU process on the host.

Synopsis: Important: qemu-kvm-rhev security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2017:0334-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2017-0334.html

1. Summary:

An update for qemu-kvm-rhev is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux
OpenStack Platform 5.0 (Icehouse) for RHEL 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 5.0 (Icehouse) for RHEL 6 - x86_64

3. Description:

KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for
Linux on a variety of architectures. The qemu-kvm-rhev packages provide the
user-space component for running virtual machines that use KVM in
environments managed by Red Hat products.

Security Fix(es):

* Quick emulator (QEMU) built with the Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA emulator
support is vulnerable to an out-of-bounds access issue. It could occur
while copying VGA data via bitblt copy in backward mode. A privileged user
inside a guest could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process resulting in
DoS or potentially execute arbitrary code on the host with privileges of
QEMU process on the host. (CVE-2017-2615)

* Quick emulator (QEMU) built with the Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA Emulator
support is vulnerable to an out-of-bounds access issue. The issue could
occur while copying VGA data in cirrus_bitblt_cputovideo. A privileged user
inside guest could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process OR potentially
execute arbitrary code on host with privileges of the QEMU process.
(CVE-2017-2620)

* An out-of-bounds read-access flaw was found in the QEMU emulator built
with IP checksum routines. The flaw could occur when computing a TCP/UDP
packet's checksum, because a QEMU function used the packet's payload length
without checking against the data buffer's size. A user inside a guest
could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process (denial of service).
(CVE-2016-2857)

Red Hat would like to thank Wjjzhang (Tencent.com Inc.) and Li Qiang
(360.cn Inc.) for reporting CVE-2017-2615 and Ling Liu (Qihoo 360 Inc.) for
reporting CVE-2016-2857.

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:

https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

After installing this update, shut down all running virtual machines. Once
all virtual machines have shut down, start them again for this update to
take effect.

5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

1296567 - CVE-2016-2857 Qemu: net: out of bounds read in net_checksum_calculate()
1418200 - CVE-2017-2615 Qemu: display: cirrus: oob access while doing bitblt copy backward mode
1420484 - CVE-2017-2620 Qemu: display: cirrus: potential arbitrary code execution via cirrus_bitblt_cputovideo
