F5 Networks BIG-IP : Multiple QEMU vulnerabilities (K63519101)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 88770
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

CVE-2014-8106

Heap-based buffer overflow in the Cirrus VGA emulator (hw/display/cirrus_vga.c) in QEMU before 2.2.0 allows local guest users to execute arbitrary code via vectors related to blit regions.
NOTE: this vulnerability exists because an incomplete fix for CVE-2007-1320.

CVE-2015-3209 Heap-based buffer overflow in the PCNET controller in QEMU allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by sending a packet with TXSTATUS_STARTPACKET set and then a crafted packet with TXSTATUS_DEVICEOWNS set.

CVE-2015-5165 The C+ mode offload emulation in the RTL8139 network card device model in QEMU, as used in Xen 4.5.x and earlier, allows remote attackers to read process heap memory via unspecified vectors.

CVE-2015-5279 Heap-based buffer overflow in the ne2000_receive function in hw/net/ne2000.c in QEMU before 2.4.0.1 allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (instance crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors related to receiving packets.

CVE-2015-7504 Heap-based buffer overflow in the pcnet_receive function in hw/net/pcnet.c in QEMU allows guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (instance crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a series of packets in loopback mode.

CVE-2015-7512 Buffer overflow in the pcnet_receive function in hw/net/pcnet.c in QEMU, when a guest NIC has a larger MTU, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) or execute arbitrary code via a large packet.

Impact

An attacker may be able to cause a denial of service (DoS) or execute arbitrary code if using the virtual drivers specified in these CVE descriptions.

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution K63519101.
