Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-3368-01 - 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: Quick Emulator, compiled with the PC System Emulator with multiboot feature support, is vulnerable to an OOB r/w memory access issue. The issue could occur due to an integer overflow while loading a kernel image during a guest boot. A user or process could use this flaw to potentially achieve arbitrary code execution on a host.

1. Summary:

An update for qemu-kvm is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

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 ComputeNode Optional (v. 7) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 7) - ppc64, ppc64le, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 7) - 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):

* Quick Emulator (QEMU), compiled with the PC System Emulator with
multiboot feature support, is vulnerable to an OOB r/w memory access issue.
The issue could occur due to an integer overflow while loading a kernel
image during a guest boot. A user or process could use this flaw to
potentially achieve arbitrary code execution on a host. (CVE-2017-14167)

* Quick emulator (QEMU), compiled with the Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA Emulator
support, is vulnerable to an OOB write access issue. The issue could occur
while writing to VGA memory via mode4and5 write functions. A privileged
user inside guest could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process resulting
in Denial of Serivce (DoS). (CVE-2017-15289)

Red Hat would like to thank Thomas Garnier (Google.com) for reporting
CVE-2017-14167 and Guoxiang Niu (Huawei.com) for reporting CVE-2017-15289.

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/):

1489375 - CVE-2017-14167 Qemu: i386: multiboot OOB access while loading kernel image
