SUSE SLES11 Security Update : xen (SUSE-SU-2017:0647-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 97657

Synopsis

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

Description

This update for xen fixes several issues. These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2017-5973: A infinite loop while doing control transfer in xhci_kick_epctx allowed privileged user inside the guest to crash the host process resulting in DoS (bsc#1025188)

- CVE-2016-10155: The virtual hardware watchdog 'wdt_i6300esb' was vulnerable to a memory leakage issue allowing a privileged user to cause a DoS and/or potentially crash the Qemu process on the host (bsc#1024183)

- CVE-2017-2620: In CIRRUS_BLTMODE_MEMSYSSRC mode the bitblit copy routine cirrus_bitblt_cputovideo failed to check the memory region, allowing for an out-of-bounds write that allows for privilege escalation (bsc#1024834)

- CVE-2017-5856: The MegaRAID SAS 8708EM2 Host Bus Adapter emulation support was vulnerable to a memory leakage issue allowing a privileged user to leak host memory resulting in DoS (bsc#1024186)

- CVE-2017-5898: The CCID Card device emulator support was vulnerable to an integer overflow flaw allowing a privileged user to crash the Qemu process on the host resulting in DoS (bsc#1024307)

- CVE-2017-2615: An error in the bitblt copy operation could have allowed a malicious guest administrator to cause an out of bounds memory access, possibly leading to information disclosure or privilege escalation (bsc#1023004)

- CVE-2014-8106: A heap-based buffer overflow in the Cirrus VGA emulator allowed local guest users to execute arbitrary code via vectors related to blit regions (bsc#907805)

- CVE-2017-5579: The 16550A UART serial device emulation support was vulnerable to a memory leakage issue allowing a privileged user to cause a DoS and/or potentially crash the Qemu process on the host (bsc#1022627)

- 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#1014490)

- 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#1014507)

- CVE-2016-9921: The Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA Emulator support was vulnerable to a divide by zero issue while copying VGA data. A privileged user inside guest could have used this flaw to crash the process instance on the host, resulting in DoS (bsc#1015169)

- CVE-2016-9922: The Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA Emulator support was vulnerable to a divide by zero issue while copying VGA data. A privileged user inside guest could have used this flaw to crash the process instance on the host, resulting in DoS (bsc#1015169)

- CVE-2016-9101: A memory leak in hw/net/eepro100.c allowed local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and QEMU process crash) by repeatedly unplugging an i8255x (PRO100) NIC device (bsc#1013668)

- 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#1013657)

- A malicious guest could have, by frequently rebooting over extended periods of time, run the host system out of memory, resulting in a Denial of Service (DoS) (bsc#1022871)

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.
