Debian DSA-3469-1 : qemu - security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 88628

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in qemu, a full virtualization solution on x86 hardware.

- CVE-2015-7295 Jason Wang of Red Hat Inc. discovered that the Virtual Network Device support is vulnerable to denial-of-service (via resource exhaustion), that could occur when receiving large packets.

- CVE-2015-7504 Qinghao Tang of Qihoo 360 Inc. and Ling Liu of Qihoo 360 Inc. discovered that the PC-Net II ethernet controller is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow that could result in denial-of-service (via application crash) or arbitrary code execution.

- CVE-2015-7512 Ling Liu of Qihoo 360 Inc. and Jason Wang of Red Hat Inc. discovered that the PC-Net II ethernet controller is vulnerable to a buffer overflow that could result in denial-of-service (via application crash) or arbitrary code execution.

- CVE-2015-8345 Qinghao Tang of Qihoo 360 Inc. discovered that the eepro100 emulator contains a flaw that could lead to an infinite loop when processing Command Blocks, eventually resulting in denial-of-service (via application crash).

- CVE-2015-8504 Lian Yihan of Qihoo 360 Inc. discovered that the VNC display driver support is vulnerable to an arithmetic exception flaw that could lead to denial-of-service (via application crash).

- CVE-2015-8558 Qinghao Tang of Qihoo 360 Inc. discovered that the USB EHCI emulation support contains a flaw that could lead to an infinite loop during communication between the host controller and a device driver. This could lead to denial-of-service (via resource exhaustion).

- CVE-2015-8743 Ling Liu of Qihoo 360 Inc. discovered that the NE2000 emulator is vulnerable to an out-of-bound read/write access issue, potentially resulting in information leak or memory corruption.

- CVE-2016-1568 Qinghao Tang of Qihoo 360 Inc. discovered that the IDE AHCI emulation support is vulnerable to a use-after-free issue, that could lead to denial-of-service (via application crash) or arbitrary code execution.

- CVE-2016-1714 Donghai Zhu of Alibaba discovered that the Firmware Configuration emulation support is vulnerable to an out-of-bound read/write access issue, that could lead to denial-of-service (via application crash) or arbitrary code execution.

- CVE-2016-1922 Ling Liu of Qihoo 360 Inc. discovered that 32-bit Windows guests support is vulnerable to a NULL pointer dereference issue, that could lead to denial-of-service (via application crash).

Solution

Upgrade the qemu packages.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 1.1.2+dfsg-6+deb7u12.
