Ubuntu 16.04 LTS / 18.04 LTS / 20.04 LTS / 20.10 : QEMU vulnerabilities (USN-4650-1)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 143376

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Ubuntu 16.04 LTS / 18.04 LTS / 20.04 LTS / 20.10 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the USN-4650-1 advisory.

- QEMU 5.0.0 has a use-after-free in hw/usb/hcd-xhci.c because the usb_packet_map return value is not checked. (CVE-2020-25084)

- QEMU 5.0.0 has a heap-based Buffer Overflow in flatview_read_continue in exec.c because hw/sd/sdhci.c mishandles a write operation in the SDHC_BLKSIZE case. (CVE-2020-25085)

- hw/usb/hcd-ohci.c in QEMU 5.0.0 has a stack-based buffer over-read via values obtained from the host controller driver. (CVE-2020-25624)

- hw/usb/hcd-ohci.c in QEMU 5.0.0 has an infinite loop when a TD list has a loop. (CVE-2020-25625)

- ati_2d_blt in hw/display/ati_2d.c in QEMU 4.2.1 can encounter an outside-limits situation in a calculation. A guest can crash the QEMU process. (CVE-2020-27616)

- eth_get_gso_type in net/eth.c in QEMU 4.2.1 allows guest OS users to trigger an assertion failure. A guest can crash the QEMU process via packet data that lacks a valid Layer 3 protocol. (CVE-2020-27617)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution
