EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : qemu-kvm (EulerOS-SA-2017-1079)

Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

- A heap buffer overflow flaw was found in QEMU's Cirrus
CLGD 54xx VGA emulator's VNC display driver support;
the issue could occur when a VNC client attempted to
update its display after a VGA operation is performed
by a guest. A privileged user/process inside a guest
could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code on the host with
privileges of the QEMU process. (CVE-2016-9603)

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.
