		Enea Linux Security Advisory

Product/package: Enea Linux 6.0: (QEMU 2.5.0)
Severity: High, Medium
Architecture: all
CVE Name: CVE-2016-3710, CVE-2016-3712

Following vulnerabilities have been fixed in Enea Linux 6.0 in QEMU
version 2.5.0.

The VGA module in QEMU improperly performs bounds checking on banked
access to video memory, which allows local guest OS administrators to
execute arbitrary code on the host by changing access modes after
setting the bank register, aka the "Dark Portal" issue

Integer overflow in the VGA module in QEMU allows local guest OS users
to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and QEMU process crash)
by editing VGA registers in VBE mode.
