Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-2258-01
Posted Aug 2, 2017
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-2258-01 - The gtk-vnc packages provide a VNC viewer widget for GTK. The gtk-vnc widget is built by using co-routines, which allows the widget to be completely asynchronous while remaining single-threaded. The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version: gtk-vnc. Security Fix: It was found that gtk-vnc lacked proper bounds checking while processing messages using RRE, hextile, or copyrect encodings. A remote malicious VNC server could use this flaw to crash VNC viewers which are based on the gtk-vnc library.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Moderate. 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 Client (v. 7) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client Optional (v. 7) - x86_64

3. Description:

The gtk-vnc packages provide a VNC viewer widget for GTK. The gtk-vnc
widget is built by using co-routines, which allows the widget to be
completely asynchronous while remaining single-threaded.

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
gtk-vnc (0.7.0). (BZ#1416783)

Security Fix(es):

* It was found that gtk-vnc lacked proper bounds checking while processing
messages using RRE, hextile, or copyrect encodings. A remote malicious VNC
server could use this flaw to crash VNC viewers which are based on the
gtk-vnc library. (CVE-2017-5884)

* An integer overflow flaw was found in gtk-vnc. A remote malicious VNC
server could use this flaw to crash VNC viewers which are based on the
gtk-vnc library. (CVE-2017-5885)

Additional Changes:

For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.4 Release Notes linked from the References section.

4. Solution:

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

921008 - Guest will keep typing '~' after press F9 and F10 in same time.
921330 - Remote-viewer shows no error if connect to a spice port through vnc protocol
1126825 - Unnecessary warning messages show when shutdown vnc guest during virt-viewer $guest --wait
1416783 - Rebase to 0.7.0 release to fix numerous bugs
1418944 - CVE-2017-5884 gtk-vnc: Improper check of framebuffer boundaries when processing a tile
