Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2016-05-19 13:50:28 UTC
From https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1337505:

Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the ESP/NCR53C9x controller emulation support
is vulnerable to an OOB write access issue. The controller uses 16-byte FIFO
buffer for command and data transfer. The OOB write occurs while writing to
this command buffer in routine get_cmd().

A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to crash the Qemu process
resulting in DoS.

Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the ESP/NCR53C9x controller emulation support
is vulnerable to an OOB write access issue. The controller uses 16-byte FIFO
buffer for command and data transfer. The OOB write occurs while writing to
this command buffer in esp_reg_write().

A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to crash the Qemu process
resulting in DoS OR potentially leverage it to execute arbitrary code with
privileges of the Qemu process on the host.

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.

CVE-2016-4441 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2016-4441):
  The get_cmd function in hw/scsi/esp.c in the 53C9X Fast SCSI Controller
  (FSC) support in QEMU does not properly check DMA length, which allows local
  guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write
  and QEMU process crash) via unspecified vectors, involving an SCSI command.

CVE-2016-4439 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2016-4439):
  The esp_reg_write function in hw/scsi/esp.c in the 53C9X Fast SCSI
  Controller (FSC) support in QEMU does not properly check command buffer
  length, which allows local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of
  service (out-of-bounds write and QEMU process crash) or potentially execute
  arbitrary code on the QEMU host via unspecified vectors.
