(Red Hat Issues Fix for QEMU) Xen Qemu VGA Module Bugs Let Local Users on the Guest Deny Service on the Guest or Gain Elevated Privileges on the Host System
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1035809
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1035809
CVE Reference:   CVE-2016-3710   (Links to External Site)
Date:  May 9 2016
Impact:   Denial of service via network, User access via local system
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  

Description:   Two vulnerabilities were reported in Xen. A local user on the guest system can cause denial of service conditions on the guest system. A local user on the guest system can gain elevated privileges on the host system. QEMU is affected.

A privileged local user on the guest system can exploit a flaw in the Qemu VGA module to modify memory access modes and potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the Qemu process [CVE-2016-3710].

A local user on the guest system can exploit a flaw in the Qemu VGA module to edit certain registers and trigger an out-of-bounds memory read error or integer overflow and cause denial of service conditions on the guest system [CVE-2016-3712].

Systems running on x86 with HVM guests with the qemu process running in dom0 are affected.

ARM systems are not affected.

Systems running only PV guests are not affected.

"Wei Xiao and Qinghao Tang of 360 Marvel Team" of 360.cn Inc. and Zuozhi Fzz of Alibaba Inc. reported these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A local user on the guest system can cause denial of service conditions on the guest system.

A local user on the guest system can gain elevated privileges on the host system.

Solution:   Red Hat has issued a fix for CVE-2016-3710 for QEMU.

3. Description:

KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for
Linux on AMD64 and Intel 64 systems. The qemu-kvm packages provide the
user-space component for running virtual machines using KVM.

Security Fix(es):

* An out-of-bounds read/write access flaw was found in the way QEMU's VGA
emulation with VESA BIOS Extensions (VBE) support performed read/write
operations via I/O port methods. A privileged guest user could use this
flaw to execute arbitrary code on the host with the privileges of the
host's QEMU process. (CVE-2016-3710)

Red Hat would like to thank Wei Xiao (360 Marvel Team) and Qinghao Tang
(360 Marvel Team) for reporting this issue.

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:

https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

After installing this update, shut down all running virtual machines. Once
all virtual machines have shut down, start them again for this update to
take effect.
