=====================================================================
                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Important: qemu-kvm-rhev security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2017:0344-01
Product:           Red Hat Virtualization
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2017-0344.html
Issue date:        2017-02-28
CVE Names:         CVE-2016-2857 CVE-2017-2615 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for qemu-kvm-rhev is now available for RHEV 3.X Hypervisor and
Agents for RHEL-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.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

RHEV Agents (vdsm) - x86_64

3. Description:

KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for
Linux on a variety of architectures. The qemu-kvm-rhev packages provide the
user-space component for running virtual machines that use KVM in
environments managed by Red Hat products.

Security Fix(es):

* Quick emulator (Qemu) built with the Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA emulator
support is vulnerable to an out-of-bounds access issue. It could occur
while copying VGA data via bitblt copy in backward mode. A privileged user
inside a guest could use this flaw to crash the Qemu process resulting in
DoS or potentially execute arbitrary code on the host with privileges of
Qemu process on the host. (CVE-2017-2615)

* An out-of-bounds read-access flaw was found in the QEMU emulator built
with IP checksum routines. The flaw could occur when computing a TCP/UDP
packet's checksum, because a QEMU function used the packet's payload length
without checking against the data buffer's size. A user inside a guest
could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process (denial of service).
(CVE-2016-2857)

Red Hat would like to thank Wjjzhang (Tencent.com Inc.) Li Qiang (360.cn
