CVE-2009-3640 The update_cr8_intercept function in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32-rc1 does not properly handle the absence of an Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller (APIC), which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via a call to the kvm_vcpu_ioctl function.
CVE-2009-3638 Integer overflow in the kvm_dev_ioctl_get_supported_cpuid function in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31.4 allows local users to have an unspecified impact via a KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID request to the kvm_arch_dev_ioctl function.
CVE-2009-3616 Multiple use-after-free vulnerabilities in vnc.c in the VNC server in QEMU 0.10.6 and earlier might allow guest OS users to execute arbitrary code on the host OS by establishing a connection from a VNC client and then (1) disconnecting during data transfer, (2) sending a message using incorrect integer data types, or (3) using the Fuzzy Screen Mode protocol, related to double free vulnerabilities.
CVE-2009-3290 The kvm_emulate_hypercall function in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in KVM in the Linux kernel 2.6.25-rc1, and other versions before 2.6.31, when running on x86 systems, does not prevent access to MMU hypercalls from ring 0, which allows local guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest kernel crash) and read or write guest kernel memory via unspecified "random addresses."
CVE-2009-2287 The kvm_arch_vcpu_ioctl_set_sregs function in the KVM in Linux kernel 2.6 before 2.6.30, when running on x86 systems, does not validate the page table root in a KVM_SET_SREGS call, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash or hang) via a crafted cr3 value, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference in the gfn_to_rmap function.
CVE-2009-1477 The https web interfaces on the ATEN KH1516i IP KVM switch with firmware 1.0.063, the KN9116 IP KVM switch with firmware 1.1.104, and the PN9108 power-control unit have a hardcoded SSL private key, which makes it easier for remote attackers to decrypt https sessions by extracting this key from their own switch and then sniffing network traffic to a switch owned by a different customer.
CVE-2009-1474 The ATEN KH1516i IP KVM switch with firmware 1.0.063 and the KN9116 IP KVM switch with firmware 1.1.104 do not (1) encrypt mouse events, which makes it easier for man-in-the-middle attackers to perform mouse operations on machines connected to the switch by injecting network traffic; and do not (2) set the secure flag for the session cookie in an https session, which makes it easier for remote attackers to capture this cookie by intercepting its transmission within an http session.
CVE-2009-1473 The (1) Windows and (2) Java client programs for the ATEN KH1516i IP KVM switch with firmware 1.0.063 and the KN9116 IP KVM switch with firmware 1.1.104 do not properly use RSA cryptography for a symmetric session-key negotiation, which makes it easier for remote attackers to (a) decrypt network traffic, or (b) conduct man-in-the-middle attacks, by repeating unspecified "client-side calculations."
CVE-2009-1472 The Java client program for the ATEN KH1516i IP KVM switch with firmware 1.0.063 and the KN9116 IP KVM switch with firmware 1.1.104 has a hardcoded AES encryption key, which makes it easier for man-in-the-middle attackers to (1) execute arbitrary Java code, or (2) gain access to machines connected to the switch, by hijacking a session.
CVE-2009-1242 The vmx_set_msr function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the VMX implementation in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.29.1 on the i386 platform allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) by setting the EFER_LME (aka "Long mode enable") bit in the Extended Feature Enable Register (EFER) model-specific register, which is specific to the x86_64 platform.
CVE-2008-4539 Heap-based buffer overflow in the Cirrus VGA implementation in (1) KVM before kvm-82 and (2) QEMU on Debian GNU/Linux and Ubuntu might allow local users to gain privileges by using the VNC console for a connection, aka the LGD-54XX "bitblt" heap overflow. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2007-1320.
CVE-2008-2382 The protocol_client_msg function in vnc.c in the VNC server in (1) Qemu 0.9.1 and earlier and (2) KVM kvm-79 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a certain message.
CVE-2004-2627 Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME) does not properly validate bytecode, which allows remote attackers to escape the Kilobyte Virtual Machine (KVM) sandbox and execute arbitrary code.
