Affected Products:
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11-SP3-LTSS

An update that solves 33 vulnerabilities and has three
fixes is now available.


kvm was updated to fix 33 security issues.

These security issues were fixed:
- CVE-2016-4439: Avoid OOB access in 53C9X emulation (bsc#980711)
- CVE-2016-4441: Avoid OOB access in 53C9X emulation (bsc#980723)
- CVE-2016-3710: Fixed VGA emulation based OOB access with potential for
guest escape (bsc#978158)
- CVE-2016-3712: Fixed VGa emulation based DOS and OOB read access exploit
- CVE-2016-4037: Fixed USB ehci based DOS (bsc#976109)
- CVE-2016-2538: Fixed potential OOB access in USB net device emulation
- CVE-2016-2841: Fixed OOB access / hang in ne2000 emulation (bsc#969350)
- CVE-2016-2858: Avoid potential DOS when using QEMU pseudo random number
generator (bsc#970036)
- CVE-2016-2857: Fixed OOB access when processing IP checksums (bsc#970037)
- CVE-2016-4001: Fixed OOB access in Stellaris enet emulated nic
- CVE-2016-4002: Fixed OOB access in MIPSnet emulated controller
- CVE-2016-4020: Fixed possible host data leakage to guest from TPR access
- CVE-2015-3214: Fixed OOB read in i8254 PIC (bsc#934069)
- CVE-2014-9718: Fixed the handling of malformed or short ide PRDTs to
avoid any opportunity for guest to cause DoS by abusing that interface
- CVE-2014-3689: Fixed insufficient parameter validation in rectangle
functions (bsc#901508)
- CVE-2014-3615: The VGA emulator in QEMU allowed local guest users to
read host memory by setting the display to a high resolution
- CVE-2015-5239: Integer overflow in vnc_client_read() and
protocol_client_msg() (bsc#944463).
- CVE-2015-5278: Infinite loop in ne2000_receive() function (bsc#945989).
- CVE-2015-5279: Heap-based buffer overflow in the ne2000_receive function
in hw/net/ne2000.c in QEMU allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of
service (instance crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors
related to receiving packets (bsc#945987).
- CVE-2015-5745: Buffer overflow in virtio-serial (bsc#940929).
- CVE-2015-6855: hw/ide/core.c in QEMU did not properly restrict the
commands accepted by an ATAPI device, which allowed guest users to cause
a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via
certain IDE commands, as demonstrated by a WIN_READ_NATIVE_MAX command
to an empty drive, which triggers a divide-by-zero error and instance
crash (bsc#945404).
- CVE-2015-7295: hw/virtio/virtio.c in the Virtual Network Device
(virtio-net) support in QEMU, when big or mergeable receive buffers are
not supported, allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(guest network consumption) via a flood of jumbo frames on the (1)
tuntap or (2) macvtap interface (bsc#947159).
- CVE-2015-7549: PCI null pointer dereferences (bsc#958917).
- CVE-2015-8504: VNC floating point exception (bsc#958491).
- CVE-2015-8558: Infinite loop in ehci_advance_state resulting in DoS
- CVE-2015-8613: Wrong sized memset in megasas command handler
- CVE-2015-8619: Potential DoS for long HMP sendkey command argument
- CVE-2015-8743: OOB memory access in ne2000 ioport r/w functions
- CVE-2016-1568: AHCI use-after-free in aio port commands (bsc#961332).
- CVE-2016-1714: Potential OOB memory access in processing firmware
configuration (bsc#961691).
- CVE-2016-1922: NULL pointer dereference when processing hmp i/o command
- CVE-2016-1981: Potential DoS (infinite loop) in e1000 device emulation
by malicious privileged user within guest (bsc#963782).
- CVE-2016-2198: Malicious privileged guest user were able to cause DoS by
writing to read-only EHCI capabilities registers (bsc#964413).
