Oracle Linux 7 : qemu (ELSA-2019-4640)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 180647

Synopsis

The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Oracle Linux 7 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ELSA-2019-4640 advisory.

- pvrdma_realize in hw/rdma/vmw/pvrdma_main.c in QEMU has a Memory leak after an initialisation error.
(CVE-2018-20123)

- In QEMU 3.0.0, tcp_emu in slirp/tcp_subr.c has a heap-based buffer overflow. (CVE-2019-6778)

- Microarchitectural Store Buffer Data Sampling (MSBDS): Store buffers on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via a side channel with local access. A list of impacted products can be found here:
https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/corporate-information/SA00233-microcode- update-guidance_05132019.pdf (CVE-2018-12126)

- Microarchitectural Fill Buffer Data Sampling (MFBDS): Fill buffers on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via a side channel with local access. A list of impacted products can be found here:
https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/corporate-information/SA00233-microcode- update-guidance_05132019.pdf (CVE-2018-12130)

- Microarchitectural Load Port Data Sampling (MLPDS): Load ports on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via a side channel with local access. A list of impacted products can be found here:
https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/corporate-information/SA00233-microcode- update-guidance_05132019.pdf (CVE-2018-12127)

- Microarchitectural Data Sampling Uncacheable Memory (MDSUM): Uncacheable memory on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via a side channel with local access. A list of impacted products can be found here:
https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/corporate-information/SA00233-microcode- update-guidance_05132019.pdf (CVE-2019-11091)

- The Bluetooth subsystem in QEMU mishandles negative values for length variables, leading to memory corruption. (CVE-2018-19665)

- In QEMU 3.1, scsi_handle_inquiry_reply in hw/scsi/scsi-generic.c allows out-of-bounds write and read operations. (CVE-2019-6501)

- tcp_emu in slirp/tcp_subr.c (aka slirp/src/tcp_subr.c) in QEMU 3.0.0 uses uninitialized data in an snprintf call, leading to Information disclosure. (CVE-2019-9824)

- Qemu has integer overflows because IOReadHandler and its associated functions use a signed integer data type for a size value. (CVE-2018-18438)

- In QEMU 3.1.0, load_device_tree in device_tree.c calls the deprecated load_image function, which has a buffer overflow risk. (CVE-2018-20815)

- QEMU, through version 2.10 and through version 3.1.0, is vulnerable to an out-of-bounds read of up to 128 bytes in the hw/i2c/i2c-ddc.c:i2c_ddc() function. A local attacker with permission to execute i2c commands could exploit this to read stack memory of the qemu process on the host. (CVE-2019-3812)

- hw/ppc/spapr.c in QEMU through 3.1.0 allows Information Exposure because the hypervisor shares the /proc/device-tree/system-id and /proc/device-tree/model system attributes with a guest. (CVE-2019-8934)

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

Solution

Update the affected packages.
