Red Hat Security Advisory 2015-1943-01

Red Hat Security Advisory 2015-1943-01 - KVM is a full virtualization solution for Linux on AMD64 and Intel 64 systems. The qemu-kvm package provides the user-space component for running virtual machines using KVM. It was found that the QEMU's websocket frame decoder processed incoming frames without limiting resources used to process the header and the payload. An attacker able to access a guest's VNC console could use this flaw to trigger a denial of service on the host by exhausting all available memory and CPU. This issue was discovered by Daniel P. Berrange of Red Hat.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2608-1
Posted May 13, 2015
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 2608-1 - Jason Geffner discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled the virtual floppy driver. This issue is known as VENOM. A malicious guest could use this issue to cause a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code on the host as the user running the QEMU process. In the default installation, when QEMU is used with libvirt, attackers would be isolated by the libvirt AppArmor profile. Daniel P. Berrange discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled VNC websockets. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause QEMU to consume memory, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Ubuntu 14.10 and Ubuntu 15.04. Various other issues were also addressed.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2015-210
Posted Apr 27, 2015
Authored by Mandriva | Site mandriva.com

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2015-210 - A denial of service flaw was found in the way QEMU handled malformed Physical Region Descriptor Table data sent to the host's IDE and/or AHCI controller emulation. A privileged guest user could use this flaw to crash the system. It was found that the QEMU's websocket frame decoder processed incoming frames without limiting resources used to process the header and the payload. An attacker able to access a guest's VNC console could use this flaw to trigger a denial of service on the host by exhausting all available memory and CPU.
