EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 3.0.2.0 : qemu-kvm (EulerOS-SA-2021-2125)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 151333

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 :

- A flaw was found in QEMU. A heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability was found in the SDHCI device emulation support allowing a guest user or process to crash the QEMU process on the host resulting in a denial of service condition, or potentially execute arbitrary code with privileges of the QEMU process on the host.
The highest threat from this vulnerability is to data confidentiality and integrity as well as system availability.(CVE-2020-17380)

- A flaw was found in QEMU. An out-of-bounds read/write access issue was found in the SDHCI Controller emulator of QEMU. It may occur while doing multi block SDMA, if transfer block size exceeds the 's->fifo_buffer[s->buf_maxsz]' size which would leave the current element pointer 's->data_count' pointing out of bounds. This would lead the subsequent DMA r/w operation to an OOB access issue where a guest user/process may use this flaw to crash the QEMU process resulting in DoS scenario. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to data confidentiality and integrity as well as system availability.(CVE-2020-25085)

- The patch for CVE-2020-17380 and CVE-2020-25085, both involving a heap buffer overflow in the SDHCI controller emulation code of QEMU, was found to be incomplete. A malicious privileged guest could reproduce the same issues with specially crafted input, inducing a bogus transfer and subsequent out-of-bounds read/write access in sdhci_do_adma() or sdhci_sdma_transfer_multi_blocks(). CVE-2021-3409 was assigned to facilitate the tracking and backporting of the new patch.(CVE-2021-3409)

- A potential stack overflow via infinite loop issue was found in various NIC emulators of QEMU. The issue occurs in loopback mode of a NIC wherein reentrant DMA checks get bypassed. A guest user/process may use this flaw to consume CPU cycles or crash the QEMU process on the host resulting in DoS scenario.(CVE-2021-3416)

- An infinite loop flaw was found in the USB OHCI controller emulator of QEMU. This flaw occurs while servicing OHCI isochronous transfer descriptors (TD) in the ohci_service_iso_td routine, as it retires a TD if it has passed its time frame. It does not check if the TD was already processed and holds an error code in TD_CC. This issue may happen if the TD list has a loop.
This flaw allows a guest user or process to consume CPU cycles on the host, resulting in a denial of service.(CVE-2020-25625)

- An infinite loop flaw was found in the e1000e device emulator in QEMU. This issue could occur while receiving packets via the e1000e_write_packet_to_guest() routine, if the receive(RX) descriptor has a NULL buffer address. This flaw allows a privileged guest user to cause a denial of service. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability.(CVE-2020-28916)

- An assert(3) failure flaw was found in the networking helper functions of QEMU. This vulnerability can occur in the eth_get_gso_type() routine if a packet does not have a valid networking L3 protocol (ex. IPv4, IPv6) value. This flaw allows a guest user to crash the QEMU process on the host, resulting in a denial of service.(CVE-2020-27617)

- A use-after-free flaw was found in the USB(xHCI/eHCI) controller emulators of QEMU. This flaw occurs while setting up the USB packet as a usb_packet_map() routine and returns an error that was not checked. This flaw allows a guest user or process to crash the QEMU process, resulting in a denial of service.(CVE-2020-25084)

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.
