Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2016-05-30 08:57:51 UTC
From ${URL} :

Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the VMware-SVGA "chipset" emulation support is 
vulnerable to an infinite loop issue. It could occur while processing VGA 
commands via its FIFO buffer.

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

CVE-2016-4454 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2016-4454):
  The vmsvga_fifo_read_raw function in hw/display/vmware_vga.c in QEMU allows
  local guest OS administrators to obtain sensitive host memory information or
  cause a denial of service (QEMU process crash) by changing FIFO registers
  and issuing a VGA command, which triggers an out-of-bounds read.

CVE-2016-4453 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2016-4453):
  The vmsvga_fifo_run function in hw/display/vmware_vga.c in QEMU allows local
  guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and QEMU
  process crash) via a VGA command.
