SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : qemu (SUSE-SU-2017:0127-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 96529

Synopsis

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

Description

qemu was updated to fix several issues. These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2016-9102: Memory leak in the v9fs_xattrcreate function in hw/9pfs/9p.c in allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and QEMU process crash) via a large number of Txattrcreate messages with the same fid number (bsc#1014256).

- CVE-2016-9103: The v9fs_xattrcreate function in hw/9pfs/9p.c in allowed local guest OS administrators to obtain sensitive host heap memory information by reading xattribute values writing to them (bsc#1007454).

- CVE-2016-9381: Improper processing of shared rings allowing guest administrators take over the qemu process, elevating their privilege to that of the qemu process (bsc#1009109)

- CVE-2016-9776: The ColdFire Fast Ethernet Controller emulator support was vulnerable to an infinite loop issue while receiving packets in 'mcf_fec_receive'. A privileged user/process inside guest could have used this issue to crash the Qemu process on the host leading to DoS (bsc#1013285).

- CVE-2016-9845: The Virtio GPU Device emulator support as vulnerable to an information leakage issue while processing the 'VIRTIO_GPU_CMD_GET_CAPSET_INFO' command.
A guest user/process could have used this flaw to leak contents of the host memory (bsc#1013767).

- CVE-2016-9846: The Virtio GPU Device emulator support was vulnerable to a memory leakage issue while updating the cursor data in update_cursor_data_virgl. A guest user/process could have used this flaw to leak host memory bytes, resulting in DoS for the host (bsc#1013764).

- CVE-2016-9907: The USB redirector usb-guest support was vulnerable to a memory leakage flaw when destroying the USB redirector in 'usbredir_handle_destroy'. A guest user/process could have used this issue to leak host memory, resulting in DoS for a host (bsc#1014109).

- CVE-2016-9908: The Virtio GPU Device emulator support was vulnerable to an information leakage issue while processing the 'VIRTIO_GPU_CMD_GET_CAPSET' command. A guest user/process could have used this flaw to leak contents of the host memory (bsc#1014514).

- CVE-2016-9911: The USB EHCI Emulation support was vulnerable to a memory leakage issue while processing packet data in 'ehci_init_transfer'. A guest user/process could have used this issue to leak host memory, resulting in DoS for the host (bsc#1014111).

- CVE-2016-9912: The Virtio GPU Device emulator support was vulnerable to a memory leakage issue while destroying gpu resource object in 'virtio_gpu_resource_destroy'. A guest user/process could have used this flaw to leak host memory bytes, resulting in DoS for the host (bsc#1014112).

- CVE-2016-9913: VirtFS was vulnerable to memory leakage issue via its '9p-handle' or '9p-proxy' backend drivers.
A privileged user inside guest could have used this flaw to leak host memory, thus affecting other services on the host and/or potentially crash the Qemu process on the host (bsc#1014110).

The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
