Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in Xen's bundled QEMU version might allow privilege
escalation.

Background
==========

Xen is a bare-metal hypervisor.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 app-emulation/xen-tools < 4.7.1-r8 >= 4.7.1-r8

Description
===========

In CIRRUS_BLTMODE_MEMSYSSRC mode the bitblit copy routine
cirrus_bitblt_cputovideo fails to check wethehr the specified memory
region is safe.

Impact
======

A local attacker could potentially execute arbitrary code with
privileges of Xen (QEMU) process on the host, gain privileges on the
host system, or cause a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

Running guests in Paravirtualization (PV) mode, or running guests in
Hardware-assisted virtualizion (HVM) utilizing stub domains mitigate
the issue.

Running HVM guests with the device model in a stubdomain will mitigate
the issue.

Changing the video card emulation to stdvga (stdvga=1, vga="stdvga", in
the xl domain configuration) will avoid the vulnerability.

Resolution
==========

All Xen Tools users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=app-emulation/xen-tools-4.7.1-r8"
