Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1206-01
Posted May 10, 2017
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1206-01 - Kernel-based Virtual Machine is a full virtualization solution for Linux on a variety of architectures. The qemu-kvm package provides the user-space component for running virtual machines that use KVM. Security Fix: A heap buffer overflow flaw was found in QEMU's Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA emulator's VNC display driver support; the issue could occur when a VNC client attempted to update its display after a VGA operation is performed by a guest. A privileged user/process inside a guest could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process or, potentially, execute arbitrary code on the host with privileges of the QEMU process.

Synopsis: Important: qemu-kvm security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2017:1206-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2017:1206
Issue date: 2017-05-09

CVE-2017-7980
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for qemu-kvm is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 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 Desktop (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6) - i386, ppc64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) is a full virtualization solution for
Linux on a variety of architectures. The qemu-kvm package provides the
user-space component for running virtual machines that use KVM.

Security Fix(es):

* A heap buffer overflow flaw was found in QEMU's Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA
emulator's VNC display driver support; the issue could occur when a VNC
client attempted to update its display after a VGA operation is performed
by a guest. A privileged user/process inside a guest could use this flaw to
crash the QEMU process or, potentially, execute arbitrary code on the host
with privileges of the QEMU process. (CVE-2016-9603)

* An out-of-bounds r/w access issue was found in QEMU's Cirrus CLGD 54xx
VGA Emulator support. The vulnerability could occur while copying VGA data
via various bitblt functions. A privileged user inside a guest could use
this flaw to crash the QEMU process or, potentially, execute arbitrary code
on the host with privileges of the QEMU process. (CVE-2017-7980)

* An out-of-bounds memory access issue was found in QEMU's VNC display
driver support. The vulnerability could occur while refreshing the VNC
display surface area in the 'vnc_refresh_server_surface'. A user/process
inside a guest could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process, resulting in
a denial of service. (CVE-2017-2633)

* An out-of-bounds access issue was found in QEMU's Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA
Emulator support. The vulnerability could occur while copying VGA data
using bitblt functions (for example, cirrus_bitblt_rop_fwd_transp_). A
privileged user inside a guest could use this flaw to crash the QEMU
process, resulting in denial of service. (CVE-2017-7718)

Red Hat would like to thank Jiangxin (PSIRT Huawei Inc.) and Li Qiang
(Qihoo 360 Gear Team) for reporting CVE-2017-7980 and Jiangxin (PSIRT
Huawei Inc.) for reporting CVE-2017-7718.

4. Solution:
