AlmaLinux 8 : virt:rhel and virt-devel:rhel (ALSA-2022:1759)

Description

The remote AlmaLinux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ALSA-2022:1759 advisory. - A flaw was found in the hivex library. This flaw allows an attacker to input a specially crafted Windows Registry (hive) file, which would cause hivex to recursively call the _get_children() function, leading to a stack overflow. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability. (CVE-2021-3622) - A flaw was found in nbdkit due to to improperly caching plaintext state across the STARTTLS encryption boundary. A MitM attacker could use this flaw to inject a plaintext NBD_OPT_STRUCTURED_REPLY before proxying everything else a client sends to the server, potentially leading the client to terminate the NBD session. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability. (CVE-2021-3716) - A use-after-free vulnerability was found in the virtio-net device of QEMU. It could occur when the descriptor's address belongs to the non direct access region, due to num_buffers being set after the virtqueue elem has been unmapped. A malicious guest could use this flaw to crash QEMU, resulting in a denial of service condition, or potentially execute code on the host with the privileges of the QEMU process. (CVE-2021-3748) - A NULL pointer dereference issue was found in the block mirror layer of QEMU in versions prior to 6.2.0. The `self` pointer is dereferenced in mirror_wait_on_conflicts() without ensuring that it's not NULL. A malicious unprivileged user within the guest could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process on the host when writing data reaches the threshold of mirroring node. (CVE-2021-4145) - A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the floppy disk emulator of QEMU. This issue occurs while processing read/write ioport commands if the selected floppy drive is not initialized with a block device. This flaw allows a privileged guest user to crash the QEMU process on the host, resulting in a denial of service. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability. (CVE-2021-20196) - In NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted NTFS attribute is supplied to the function ntfs_get_attribute_value, a heap buffer overflow can occur allowing for memory disclosure or denial of service. The vulnerability is caused by an out-of-bound buffer access which can be triggered by mounting a crafted ntfs partition. The root cause is a missing consistency check after reading an MFT record : the bytes_in_use field should be less than the bytes_allocated field. When it is not, the parsing of the records proceeds into the wild. (CVE-2021-33285) - In NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted unicode string is supplied in an NTFS image a heap buffer overflow can occur and allow for code execution. (CVE-2021-33286) - In NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when specially crafted NTFS attributes are read in the function ntfs_attr_pread_i, a heap buffer overflow can occur and allow for writing to arbitrary memory or denial of service of the application. (CVE-2021-33287) - In NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted MFT section is supplied in an NTFS image a heap buffer overflow can occur and allow for code execution. (CVE-2021-33289) - In NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted NTFS inode pathname is supplied in an NTFS image a heap buffer overflow can occur resulting in memory disclosure, denial of service and even code execution. (CVE-2021-35266) - NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, a stack buffer overflow can occur when correcting differences in the MFT and MFTMirror allowing for code execution or escalation of privileges when setuid-root. (CVE-2021-35267) - In NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted NTFS inode is loaded in the function ntfs_inode_real_open, a heap buffer overflow can occur allowing for code execution and escalation of privileges. (CVE-2021-35268) - NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted NTFS attribute from the MFT is setup in the function ntfs_attr_setup_flag, a heap buffer overflow can occur allowing for code execution and escalation of privileges. (CVE-2021-35269) - A crafted NTFS image can cause a NULL pointer dereference in ntfs_extent_inode_open in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39251) - A crafted NTFS image can cause an out-of-bounds read in ntfs_ie_lookup in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39252) - A crafted NTFS image can cause an out-of-bounds read in ntfs_runlists_merge_i in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39253) - A crafted NTFS image can cause an integer overflow in memmove, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow in the function ntfs_attr_record_resize, in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39254) - A crafted NTFS image can trigger an out-of-bounds read, caused by an invalid attribute in ntfs_attr_find_in_attrdef, in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39255) - A crafted NTFS image can cause a heap-based buffer overflow in ntfs_inode_lookup_by_name in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39256) - A crafted NTFS image with an unallocated bitmap can lead to a endless recursive function call chain (starting from ntfs_attr_pwrite), causing stack consumption in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39257) - A crafted NTFS image can cause out-of-bounds reads in ntfs_attr_find and ntfs_external_attr_find in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39258) - A crafted NTFS image can trigger an out-of-bounds access, caused by an unsanitized attribute length in ntfs_inode_lookup_by_name, in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39259) - A crafted NTFS image can cause an out-of-bounds access in ntfs_inode_sync_standard_information in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39260) - A crafted NTFS image can cause a heap-based buffer overflow in ntfs_compressed_pwrite in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39261) - A crafted NTFS image can cause an out-of-bounds access in ntfs_decompress in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39262) - A crafted NTFS image can trigger a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by an unsanitized attribute in ntfs_get_attribute_value, in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39263) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
