EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 3.0.2.0 : qemu-kvm (EulerOS-SA-2019-1633)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 125585
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the qemu-kvm packages installed, the EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- qemu-kvm is an open source virtualizer that provides hardware emulation for the KVM hypervisor. qemu-kvm acts as a virtual machine monitor together with the KVM kernel modules, and emulates the hardware for a full system such as a PC and its assocated peripherals. As qemu-kvm requires no host kernel patches to run, it is safe and easy to use. Security Fix(es):Memory leak in hw/watchdog/wdt_i6300esb.c in QEMU (aka Quick Emulator) allows local guest OS privileged users to cause a denial of service (host memory consumption and QEMU process crash) via a large number of device unplug operations.(CVE-2016-10155)Memory leak in the audio/audio.c in QEMU (aka Quick Emulator) allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by repeatedly starting and stopping audio capture.(CVE-2017-8309)Memory leak in the keyboard input event handlers support in QEMU (aka Quick Emulator) allows local guest OS privileged users to cause a denial of service (host memory consumption) by rapidly generating large keyboard events.(CVE-2017-8379)hw/input/ps2.c in Qemu does not validate 'rptr' and 'count' values during guest migration, leading to out-of-bounds access.
(CVE-2017-16845)The cirrus_invalidate_region function in hw/display/cirrus_vga.c in Qemu allows local OS guest privileged users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access and QEMU process crash) via vectors related to negative pitch.(CVE-2017-18030)Quick Emulator (Qemu) built with the VirtFS, host directory sharing via Plan 9 File System (9pfs) support, is vulnerable to an improper access control issue. It could occur while accessing files on a shared host directory. A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to access host file system beyond the shared folder and potentially escalating their privileges on a host.(CVE-2017-7471)An out-of-bounds read vulnerability was found in the SLiRP networking implementation of the QEMU emulator. This flaw occurs in the icmp6_send_echoreply() routine while replying to an ICMP echo request, also known as ping. This flaw allows a malicious guest to leak the contents of the host memory, resulting in possible information disclosure.
This flaw affects versions of libslirp before 4.3.1.(CVE-2020-10756)The rc4030_write function in hw/dma/rc4030.c in QEMU (aka Quick Emulator) allows local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error and QEMU process crash) via a large interval timer reload value.(CVE-2016-8667)

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.

Solution

Update the affected qemu-kvm packages.
