EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : qemu-kvm (EulerOS-SA-2016-1066)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description :

According to the versions of the qemu-kvm package installed, the
EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following
vulnerabilities :

- An integer overflow flaw and an out-of-bounds read flaw
were found in the way QEMU's VGA emulator set certain
VGA registers while in VBE mode. A privileged guest
user could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process
instance. (CVE-2016-3712)

- An infinite loop flaw was found in the way QEMU's e1000
NIC emulation implementation processed data using
transmit or receive descriptors under certain
conditions. A privileged user inside a guest could use
this flaw to crash the QEMU instance. (CVE-2016-1981)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
