Details

Leo Gaspard discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled VirtFS access control.
A guest attacker could use this issue to elevate privileges inside the
guest. (CVE-2017-7493)

Li Qiang discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled VMWare PVSCSI emulation.
A privileged attacker inside the guest could use this issue to cause QEMU
to consume resources or crash, resulting in a denial of service.
(CVE-2017-8112)

It was discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled MegaRAID SAS 8708EM2 Host
Bus Adapter emulation support. A privileged attacker inside the guest could
use this issue to cause QEMU to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or
possibly to obtain sensitive host memory. This issue only affected Ubuntu
16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 17.04. (CVE-2017-8380)

Li Qiang discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled the Virtio GPU device. An
attacker inside the guest could use this issue to cause QEMU to consume
resources and crash, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only
affected Ubuntu 17.04. (CVE-2017-9060)

Li Qiang discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled the e1000e device. A
privileged attacker inside the guest could use this issue to cause QEMU to
hang, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu
17.04. (CVE-2017-9310)

Li Qiang discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled USB OHCI emulation
support. An attacker inside the guest could use this issue to cause QEMU to
crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2017-9330)

Li Qiang discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled IDE AHCI emulation
support. A privileged attacker inside the guest could use this issue to
cause QEMU to consume resources and crash, resulting in a denial of
service. (CVE-2017-9373)

Li Qiang discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled USB EHCI emulation
support. A privileged attacker inside the guest could use this issue to
cause QEMU to consume resources and crash, resulting in a denial of
service. (CVE-2017-9374)

Li Qiang discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled USB xHCI emulation
support. A privileged attacker inside the guest could use this issue to
cause QEMU to hang, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2017-9375)

Zhangyanyu discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled MegaRAID SAS 8708EM2
Host Bus Adapter emulation support. A privileged attacker inside the guest
could use this issue to cause QEMU to crash, resulting in a denial of
service. (CVE-2017-9503)

It was discovered that the QEMU qemu-nbd server incorrectly handled
initialization. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause the server
to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2017-9524)

It was discovered that the QEMU qemu-nbd server incorrectly handled
signals. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause the server to
crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2017-10664)

Li Qiang discovered that the QEMU USB redirector incorrectly handled
logging debug messages. An attacker inside the guest could use this issue
to cause QEMU to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2017-10806)

Anthony Perard discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled Xen block-interface
responses. An attacker inside the guest could use this issue to cause QEMU
to leak contents of host memory. (CVE-2017-10911)

Reno Robert discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled certain DHCP options
strings. An attacker inside the guest could use this issue to cause QEMU
to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2017-11434)

Ryan Salsamendi discovered that QEMU incorrectly handled empty CDROM device
drives. A privileged attacker inside the guest could use this issue to
cause QEMU to crash, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only
affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 17.04. (CVE-2017-12809)
