Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-0983-01

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-0983-01
Posted Apr 18, 2017
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-0983-01 - 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 and the VNC display driver support, is vulnerable to a heap buffer overflow issue. The issue could occur when a VNC client attempts to update its display after a VGA operation is performed by a guest. A privileged user/process inside guest could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process resulting in DoS or, potentially, leverage it to execute arbitrary code on the host with privileges of the QEMU process.
