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):

* The Network Block Device (NBD) server in Quick Emulator (QEMU), is
vulnerable to a denial of service issue. It could occur if a client sent
large option requests, making the server waste CPU time on reading up to
4GB per request. A client could use this flaw to keep the NBD server from
serving other requests, resulting in DoS. (CVE-2017-15119)

* Qemu: vga: OOB read access during display update (CVE-2017-13672)

* Qemu: vga: reachable assert failure during display update
(CVE-2017-13673)

* Qemu: Slirp: use-after-free when sending response (CVE-2017-13711)

* VNC server implementation in Quick Emulator (QEMU) was found to be
vulnerable to an unbounded memory allocation issue, as it did not throttle
the framebuffer updates sent to its client. If the client did not consume
these updates, VNC server allocates growing memory to hold onto this data.
A malicious remote VNC client could use this flaw to cause DoS to the
server host. (CVE-2017-15124)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
score, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in
the References section.

Red Hat would like to thank David Buchanan for reporting CVE-2017-13672 and
CVE-2017-13673 and Wjjzhang (Tencent.com) for reporting CVE-2017-13711. The
