Description Prasad J Pandit 2020-01-16 07:51:49 UTC
A heap buffer overflow issue was found in the SLiRP networking implementation
of the QEMU emulator. It occurs in tcp_emu() routine while emulating IRC and
other protocols.

A user/process could use this flaw to crash the Qemu process on the host
resulting in DoS or potentially execute arbitrary code with privileges of the 
QEMU process.

Comment 2 Prasad J Pandit 2020-01-16 07:52:29 UTC
Created qemu tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1791552]

Comment 6 Prasad J Pandit 2020-01-16 09:11:03 UTC
Mitigation:

This issue can only be resolved by applying updates.

Mitigation for this issue is either not available or the currently available options don't meet the Red Hat Product Security criteria comprising ease of use and deployment, applicability to widespread installation base or stability.

Comment 9 Joshua Padman 2020-01-17 01:13:49 UTC
Statement:

This issue affects user-mode or SLiRP networking implementation of the QEMU emulator. Though qemu-kvm package is built with SLiRP networking support, due to its limitations, it is not used by the virtual machine guests by default.

This issue affects versions of the qemu-kvm package as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, 7, 8 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Virtualization 8. Future qemu-kvm package updates for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, 7, 8 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Virtualization 8 may address this issue.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 is now in Maintenance Support 2 Phase of the support and maintenance life cycle. This issue is currently not planned to be addressed in its future updates. For additional information, refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Life Cycle: https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata/.

Red Hat OpenStack Platform:                                                                                                                 
* This flaw impacts KVM user-mode or SLIRP networking, which is not used in Red Hat OpenStack Platform. Although updating is recommended for affected versions (see below), Red Hat OpenStack Platform environments are not vulnerable.
