Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: ovirt-guest-agent-docker security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2018:0049-01
Product: Red Hat Virtualization
Advisory URL:
Issue date: 2018-01-05

1. Summary:

An update for ovirt-guest-agent-docker is now available for RHEV 4.X,
RHEV-H, and Agents for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Description:

The ovirt-guest-agent-docker package provides the guest agent for Red Hat
Linux Atomic Host virtual machines. The guest agent allows the Red Hat
Virtualization Manager to receive internal guest events and retrieve
information such as the IP address and the list of installed applications
from the guest. Additionally the guest agent allows the Manager to execute
specific commands, such as shut down or reboot, on guest virtual machines.

Security Fix(es):

* An industry-wide issue was found in the way many modern microprocessor
designs have implemented speculative execution of instructions (a commonly
used performance optimization). There are three primary variants of the
issue which differ in the way the speculative execution can be exploited.
Variant CVE-2017-5715 triggers the speculative execution by utilizing
branch target injection. It relies on the presence of a precisely-defined
instruction sequence in the privileged code as well as the fact that memory
accesses may cause allocation into the microprocessor’s data cache even for
speculatively executed instructions that never actually commit (retire). As
a result, an unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to cross the syscall
and guest/host boundaries and read privileged memory by conducting targeted
cache side-channel attacks. (CVE-2017-5715)

Note: This is the ovirt-guest-agent-docker side of the CVE-2017-5715

Red Hat would like to thank Google Project Zero for reporting this issue.

Bug Fix(es):

* Previously, during Atomic host shutdown, the container was killed before
the Guest Agent had a chance to send ‘session-shutdown’ message to VDSM
host. This is now fixed. (BZ#1427849)
