Subject: CVE-2017-2633 Qemu: VNC: memory corruption due to unchecked resolution


Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the VNC display driver support is vulnerable 
to an out-of-bounds memory access issue. It could occur while refreshing the 
vnc display surface area in 'vnc_refresh_server_surface'.

A user/process inside guest could use this flaw to crash the Qemu process 
resulting in DoS.

Upstream patch:

Older versions of Qemu are affected, latest upstream releases are not.

'CVE-2017-2633' has been assigned to this issue by Red Hat Inc.
