Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2018-02-06 18:31:11 UTC
CVE-2018-5748 (https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2018-5748):
  qemu/qemu_monitor.c in libvirt allows attackers to cause a denial of service
  (memory consumption) via a large QEMU reply.

CVE-2018-5683 (https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2018-5683):
  The vga_draw_text function in Qemu allows 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.

CVE-2017-18043 (https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2017-18043):
  Integer overflow in the macro ROUND_UP (n, d) in Quick Emulator (Qemu)
  allows a user to cause a denial of service (Qemu process crash).

CVE-2017-18030 (https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2017-18030):
  The cirrus_invalidate_region function in hw/display/cirrus_vga.c in Qemu
  allows 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.

CVE-2017-17381 (https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2017-17381):
  The Virtio Vring implementation in QEMU allows 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.

CVE-2017-15124 (https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2017-15124):
  VNC server implementation in Quick Emulator (QEMU) 2.11.0 and older 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.

Security,

CVE-2018-5748 is a libvirt issue, it has nothing to do with qemu. Please open a new security bug for this one.
