Ubuntu 9.10 / 10.04 LTS / 10.10 : qemu-kvm vulnerability (USN-1063-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description :

Neil Wilson discovered that if VNC passwords were blank in QEMU
configurations, access to VNC sessions was allowed without a password
instead of being disabled. A remote attacker could connect to running
VNC sessions of QEMU and directly control the system. By default, QEMU
does not start VNC sessions.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
(CVSS2#AV:A/AC:H/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 3.6
(CVSS2#E:F/RL:OF/RC:ND)
Public Exploit Available : true
