  • Overread Buffers
    An adversary attacks a target by providing input that causes an application to read beyond the boundary of a defined buffer. This typically occurs when a value influencing where to start or stop reading is set to reflect positions outside of the valid memory location of the buffer. This type of attack may result in exposure of sensitive information, a system crash, or arbitrary code execution.

    description According to its self-reported version number, the remote Junos Space version is prior to 18.3R1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities: - A use after free vulnerability exists in the do_get_mempolicy function. An local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2018-10675) - A malicious authenticated user may be able to delete a device from the Junos Space database without the privileges through crafted Ajax interactions from another legitimate delete action performed by an administrative user. (CVE-2019-0016) - A flaw in validity checking of image files uploaded to Junos Space could allow an attacker to upload malicious scripts or images. (CVE-2019-0017) Additionally, Junos Space is affected by several other vulnerabilities exist as noted in the vendor advisory. Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

    description This update for kvm fixes the following issues : - This update has the next round of Spectre v2 related patches, which now integrates with corresponding changes in libvirt. A January 2018 release of qemu initially addressed the Spectre v2 vulnerability for KVM guests by exposing the spec-ctrl feature for all x86 vcpu types, which was the quick and dirty approach, but not the proper solution. We remove that initial patch and now rely on patches from upstream. This update defines spec_ctrl and ibpb cpu feature flags as well as new cpu models which are clones of existing models with either -IBRS or -IBPB added to the end of the model name. These new vcpu models explicitly include the new feature(s), whereas the feature flags can be added to the cpu parameter as with other features. In short, for continued Spectre v2 protection, ensure that either the appropriate cpu feature flag is added to the QEMU command-line, or one of the new cpu models is used. Although migration from older versions is supported, the new cpu features won't be properly exposed to the guest until it is restarted with the cpu features explicitly added. A reboot is insufficient. - A warning patch is added which attempts to detect a migration from a qemu version which had the quick and dirty fix (it only detects certain cases, but hopefully is helpful.) For additional information on Spectre v2 as it relates to QEMU, see: https://www.qemu.org/2018/02/14/qemu-2-11-1-and-spectre- update/ (CVE-2017-5715 bsc#1068032) - A patch is added to continue to detect Spectre v2 mitigation features (as shown by cpuid), and if found provide that feature to guests, even if running on older KVM (kernel) versions which do not yet expose that feature to QEMU. (bsc#1082276) These two patches will be removed when we can reasonably assume everyone is running with the appropriate updates. - Security fixes for the following CVE issues: (bsc#1076114 CVE-2018-5683) (bsc#1083291 CVE-2018-7550) - This patch is already included, add here for CVE track (bsc#1076179 CVE-2017-18030) - Toolchain changes have cause the built size of pxe-virtio.rom to exceed 64K. Tweak rarely used strings in code to reduce size of the binary so it fits again. - Eliminate bogus use of CPUID_7_0_EDX_PRED_CMD which we've carried since the initial Spectre v2 patch was added. EDX bit 27 of CPUID Leaf 07H, Sub-leaf 0 provides status on STIBP, and not the PRED_CMD MSR. Exposing the STIBP CPUID feature bit to the guest is wrong in general, since the VM doesn't directly control the scheduling of physical hyperthreads. This is left strictly to the L0 hypervisor. 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.

    description An out-of-bounds read access issue was found in the VGA display emulator built into the Quick emulator (QEMU). It could occur while reading VGA memory to update graphics display. A privileged user/process inside guest could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process on the host resulting in denial of service situation.(CVE-2017-13672) A memory leakage issue was found in the I/O channels websockets implementation of the Quick Emulator (QEMU). It could occur while sending screen updates to a client, which is slow to read and process them further. A privileged guest user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service on the host and/or potentially crash the QEMU process instance on the host.(CVE-2017-15268) A use-after-free issue was found in the Slirp networking implementation of the Quick emulator (QEMU). It occurs when a Socket referenced from multiple packets is freed while responding to a message. A user/process could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process on the host resulting in denial of service.(CVE-2017-13711 ) Quick Emulator (aka QEMU), when built with the Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA Emulator support, allows local guest OS privileged users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds access and QEMU process crash) by leveraging incorrect region calculation when updating VGA display.(CVE-2018-7858) VNC server implementation in Quick Emulator (QEMU) was found to be vulnerable to an unbounded memory allocation issue, as it did not throttle the framebuffer updates sent to its client. If the client did not consume these updates, VNC server allocates growing memory to hold onto this data. A malicious remote VNC client could use this flaw to cause DoS to the server host.(CVE-2017-15124) An industry-wide issue was found in the way many modern microprocessor designs have implemented speculative execution of Load & Store instructions (a commonly used performance optimization). It relies on the presence of a precisely-defined instruction sequence in the privileged code as well as the fact that memory read from address to which a recent memory write has occurred may see an older value and subsequently cause an update into the microprocessor's data cache even for speculatively executed instructions that never actually commit (retire). As a result, an unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to read privileged memory by conducting targeted cache side-channel attacks.(CVE-2018-3639) An out-of-bounds read access issue was found in the VGA emulator of QEMU. It could occur in vga_draw_text routine, while updating display area for a vnc client. A privileged user inside a guest could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process resulting in DoS.(CVE-2018-5683)

    description This update for qemu fixes the following issues : This update has the next round of Spectre v2 related patches, which now integrate with corresponding changes in libvirt. (CVE-2017-5715 bsc#1068032) The January 2018 release of qemu initially addressed the Spectre v2 vulnerability for KVM guests by exposing the spec-ctrl feature for all x86 vcpu types, which was the quick and dirty approach, but not the proper solution. We replaced our initial patch by the patches from upstream. This update defines spec_ctrl and ibpb cpu feature flags as well as new cpu models which are clones of existing models with either -IBRS or -IBPB added to the end of the model name. These new vcpu models explicitly include the new feature(s), whereas the feature flags can be added to the cpu parameter as with other features. In short, for continued Spectre v2 protection, ensure that either the appropriate cpu feature flag is added to the QEMU command-line, or one of the new cpu models is used. Although migration from older versions is supported, the new cpu features won't be properly exposed to the guest until it is restarted with the cpu features explicitly added. A reboot is insufficient. A warning patch is added which attempts to detect a migration from a qemu version which had the quick and dirty fix (it only detects certain cases, but hopefully is helpful.) For additional information on Spectre v2 as it relates to QEMU, see: https://www.qemu.org/2018/02/14/qemu-2-11-1-and-spectre-update/ A patch is added to continue to detect Spectre v2 mitigation features (as shown by cpuid), and if found provide that feature to guests, even if running on older KVM (kernel) versions which do not yet expose that feature to QEMU. (bsc#1082276) These two patches will be removed when we can reasonably assume everyone is running with the appropriate updates. Spectre fixes for IBM Z Series were included by providing more hw features to guests (bsc#1076813) Also security fixes for the following CVE issues are included : - CVE-2017-17381: The Virtio Vring implementation in QEMU allowed local OS guest users to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error and QEMU process crash) by unsetting vring alignment while updating Virtio rings. (bsc#1071228) - CVE-2017-16845: The PS2 driver in Qemu did not validate 'rptr' and 'count' values during guest migration, leading to out-of-bounds access. (bsc#1068613) - CVE-2017-15119: The Network Block Device (NBD) server in Quick Emulator (QEMU), was vulnerable to a denial of service issue. It could occur if a client sent large option requests, making the server waste CPU time on reading up to 4GB per request. A client could use this flaw to keep the NBD server from serving other requests, resulting in DoS. (bsc#1070144) - CVE-2017-18043: Integer overflow in the macro ROUND_UP (n, d) in Quick Emulator (Qemu) allowed a user to cause a denial of service (Qemu process crash). (bsc#1076775) - CVE-2018-5683: The VGA driver in Qemu allowed local OS guest privileged users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and QEMU process crash) by leveraging improper memory address validation. (bsc#1076114) - CVE-2018-7550: The multiboot functionality in Quick Emulator (aka QEMU) allowed local guest OS users to execute arbitrary code on the QEMU host via an out-of-bounds read or write memory access. (bsc#1083291) - CVE-2017-15124: VNC server implementation in Quick Emulator (QEMU) was found to be vulnerable to an unbounded memory allocation issue, as it did not throttle the framebuffer updates sent to its client. If the client did not consume these updates, VNC server allocates growing memory to hold onto this data. A malicious remote VNC client could use this flaw to cause DoS to the server host. (bsc#1073489) Additional bugs fixed : - Fix pcihp for 1.6 and older machine types (bsc#1074572) - Fix packaging dependencies (coreutils) for qemu-ksm package (bsc#1040202) This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12-SP3:Update update project.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2018:2162 : An update for qemu-kvm is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) is a full virtualization solution for Linux on a variety of architectures. The qemu-kvm packages provide the user-space component for running virtual machines that use KVM. Security Fix(es) : * An industry-wide issue was found in the way many modern microprocessor designs have implemented speculative execution of Load & Store instructions (a commonly used performance optimization). It relies on the presence of a precisely-defined instruction sequence in the privileged code as well as the fact that memory read from address to which a recent memory write has occurred may see an older value and subsequently cause an update into the microprocessor's data cache even for speculatively executed instructions that never actually commit (retire). As a result, an unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to read privileged memory by conducting targeted cache side-channel attacks. (CVE-2018-3639) Note: This is the qemu-kvm side of the CVE-2018-3639 mitigation. * QEMU: cirrus: OOB access when updating VGA display (CVE-2018-7858) * QEMU: vga: OOB read access during display update (CVE-2017-13672) * Qemu: Out-of-bounds read in vga_draw_text routine (CVE-2018-5683) For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in the References section.

    description This update for xen fixes several issues. These security issues were fixed : - CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5754: Prevent information leaks via side effects of speculative execution, aka 'Spectre' and 'Meltdown' attacks (bsc#1074562, bsc#1068032) - CVE-2018-5683: The vga_draw_text function allowed local OS guest privileged users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and QEMU process crash) by leveraging improper memory address validation (bsc#1076116). - CVE-2017-18030: The cirrus_invalidate_region function allowed local OS guest privileged users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access and QEMU process crash) via vectors related to negative pitch (bsc#1076180). - CVE-2017-15595: x86 PV guest OS users were able to cause a DoS (unbounded recursion, stack consumption, and hypervisor crash) or possibly gain privileges via crafted page-table stacking (bsc#1061081) - CVE-2017-17566: Prevent PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges in shadow mode by mapping a certain auxiliary page (bsc#1070158). - CVE-2017-17563: Prevent guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges by leveraging an incorrect mask for reference-count overflow checking in shadow mode (bsc#1070159). - CVE-2017-17564: Prevent guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges by leveraging incorrect error handling for reference counting in shadow mode (bsc#1070160). - CVE-2017-17565: Prevent PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) if shadow mode and log-dirty mode are in place, because of an incorrect assertion related to M2P (bsc#1070163). - Added missing intermediate preemption checks for guest requesting removal of memory. This allowed malicious guest administrator to cause denial of service due to the high cost of this operation (bsc#1080635). - Because of XEN not returning the proper error messages when transitioning grant tables from v2 to v1 a malicious guest was able to cause DoS or potentially allowed for privilege escalation as well as information leaks (bsc#1080662). - 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) - Unprivileged domains could have issued well-timed writes to xenstore which conflict with transactions to stall progress of the control domain or driver domain, possibly leading to DoS (bsc#1030144, XSA-206).

The qemu-kvm packages provide the user-space component for running virtual machines that use KVM. Security Fix(es) : * An industry-wide issue was found in the way many modern microprocessor designs have implemented speculative execution of Load & Store instructions (a commonly used performance optimization). It relies on the presence of a precisely-defined instruction sequence in the privileged code as well as the fact that memory read from address to which a recent memory write has occurred may see an older value and subsequently cause an update into the microprocessor's data cache even for speculatively executed instructions that never actually commit (retire). As a result, an unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to read privileged memory by conducting targeted cache side-channel attacks.

These security issues were fixed : - CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5754: Prevent information leaks via side effects of speculative execution, aka 'Spectre' and 'Meltdown' attacks (bsc#1074562, bsc#1068032) - CVE-2018-5683: The vga_draw_text function allowed local OS guest privileged users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and QEMU process crash) by leveraging improper memory address validation (bsc#1076116). - CVE-2017-18030: The cirrus_invalidate_region function allowed local OS guest privileged users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access and QEMU process crash) via vectors related to negative pitch (bsc#1076180). - CVE-2017-15595: x86 PV guest OS users were able to cause a DoS (unbounded recursion, stack consumption, and hypervisor crash) or possibly gain privileges via crafted page-table stacking (bsc#1061081) - CVE-2017-17566: Prevent PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges in shadow mode by mapping a certain auxiliary page (bsc#1070158). - CVE-2017-17563: Prevent guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges by leveraging an incorrect mask for reference-count overflow checking in shadow mode (bsc#1070159). - CVE-2017-17564: Prevent guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or gain host OS privileges by leveraging incorrect error handling for reference counting in shadow mode (bsc#1070160). - CVE-2017-17565: Prevent PV guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) if shadow mode and log-dirty mode are in place, because of an incorrect assertion related to M2P (bsc#1070163). - Added missing intermediate preemption checks for guest requesting removal of memory. This allowed malicious guest administrator to cause denial of service due to the high cost of this operation (bsc#1080635). - Because of XEN not returning the proper error messages when transitioning grant tables from v2 to v1 a malicious guest was able to cause DoS or potentially allowed for privilege escalation as well as information leaks (bsc#1080662). 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.

  • NASL family Scientific Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id SL_20180710_QEMU_KVM_ON_SL6_X.NASL
    description Security Fix(es) : - An industry-wide issue was found in the way many modern microprocessor designs have implemented speculative execution of Load & Store instructions (a commonly used performance optimization). It relies on the presence of a precisely-defined instruction sequence in the privileged code as well as the fact that memory read from address to which a recent memory write has occurred may see an older value and subsequently cause an update into the microprocessor's data cache even for speculatively executed instructions that never actually commit (retire). As a result, an unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to read privileged memory by conducting targeted cache side-channel attacks. (CVE-2018-3639) Note: This is the qemu-kvm side of the CVE-2018-3639 mitigation. - QEMU: cirrus: OOB access when updating VGA display (CVE-2018-7858) - QEMU: vga: OOB read access during display update (CVE-2017-13672) - Qemu: Out-of-bounds read in vga_draw_text routine (CVE-2018-5683)
