Synopsis

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

Description

The remote SUSE Linux SLES11 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the SUSE-SU-2019:14199-1 advisory.

- The ahci_commit_buf function in ide/ahci.c in QEMU allows attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL dereference) when the command header 'ad->cur_cmd' is null. (CVE-2019-12067)

- In QEMU 1:4.1-1, 1:2.1+dfsg-12+deb8u6, 1:2.8+dfsg-6+deb9u8, 1:3.1+dfsg-8~deb10u1, 1:3.1+dfsg-8+deb10u2, and 1:2.1+dfsg-12+deb8u12 (fixed), when executing script in lsi_execute_script(), the LSI scsi adapter emulator advances 's->dsp' index to read next opcode. This can lead to an infinite loop if the next opcode is empty. Move the existing loop exit after 10k iterations so that it covers no-op opcodes as well.
(CVE-2019-12068)

- interface_release_resource in hw/display/qxl.c in QEMU 3.1.x through 4.0.0 has a NULL pointer dereference.
(CVE-2019-12155)

- ip_reass in ip_input.c in libslirp 4.0.0 has a heap-based buffer overflow via a large packet because it mishandles a case involving the first fragment. (CVE-2019-14378)

- libslirp 4.0.0, as used in QEMU 4.1.0, has a use-after-free in ip_reass in ip_input.c. (CVE-2019-15890)

- An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.11.x allowing x86 guest OS users to cause a denial of service or gain privileges because grant-table transfer requests are mishandled. (CVE-2019-17340)

- An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.11.x allowing x86 PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service or gain privileges by leveraging a page-writability race condition during addition of a passed-through PCI device. (CVE-2019-17341)

- An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.11.x allowing x86 PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service or gain privileges by leveraging a race condition that arose when XENMEM_exchange was introduced.
(CVE-2019-17342)

- An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.11.x allowing x86 PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service or gain privileges by leveraging incorrect use of the HVM physmap concept for PV domains. (CVE-2019-17343)

- An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.11.x allowing x86 PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service by leveraging a long-running operation that exists to support restartability of PTE updates.
(CVE-2019-17344)

- An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.11.x allowing x86 PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service or gain privileges because of an incompatibility between Process Context Identifiers (PCID) and TLB flushes. (CVE-2019-17346)

- An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.11.x allowing x86 PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service or gain privileges because a guest can manipulate its virtualised %cr4 in a way that is incompatible with Linux (and possibly other guest kernels). (CVE-2019-17347)

- An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.11.x allowing x86 PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service because of an incompatibility between Process Context Identifiers (PCID) and shadow-pagetable switching.
(CVE-2019-17348)

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

Solution

Update the affected packages.
