Summary

The process_tx_desc function in hw/net/e1000.c in QEMU before 2.4.0.1 does not properly process transmit descriptor data when sending a network packet, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and guest crash) via unspecified vectors.

A privileged user inside the guest could have used this flaw to crash the Qemu instance on the host resulting in DoS (bsc#991466). - CVE-2016-7116: Host directory sharing via Plan 9 File System(9pfs) was vulnerable to a directory/path traversal issue. A privileged user inside guest could have used this flaw to access undue files on the host (bsc#996441). - CVE-2014-7815: The set_pixel_format function in ui/vnc.c in QEMU allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a small bytes_per_pixel value (bsc#902737). 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.

    descriptionSeveral vulnerabilities were discovered in qemu-kvm, a full virtualization solution on x86 hardware. - CVE-2015-5278 Qinghao Tang of QIHU 360 Inc. discovered an infinite loop issue in the NE2000 NIC emulation. A privileged guest user could use this flaw to mount a denial of service (QEMU process crash). - CVE-2015-5279 Qinghao Tang of QIHU 360 Inc. discovered a heap buffer overflow flaw in the NE2000 NIC emulation. A privileged guest user could use this flaw to mount a denial of service (QEMU process crash), or potentially to execute arbitrary code on the host with the privileges of the hosting QEMU process. - CVE-2015-6815 Qinghao Tang of QIHU 360 Inc. discovered an infinite loop issue in the e1000 NIC emulation. A privileged guest user could use this flaw to mount a denial of service (QEMU process crash). - CVE-2015-6855 Qinghao Tang of QIHU 360 Inc. discovered a flaw in the IDE subsystem in QEMU occurring while executing IDE
