[Libvirt-announce] LSN-2016-0001 - Authentication disabled when setting empty VNC password



        Libvirt Security Notice: LSN-2016-0001
        ======================================

       Summary: Authentication disabled when setting empty VNC
                password
   Reported on: 20130531
  Published on: 20130531
      Fixed on: 20160630
   Reported by: Vivian Zhang <vivianzhang redhat com>
                Christoph Anton Mitterer <calestyo scientia net>
    Patched by: Jiri Denemar <jdenemar redhat com>
      See also: CVE-2016-5008

Description
-----------

An empty password set for the VNC server is documented as preventing
all client connections. This is the behaviour when QEMU virtual
machines are first started with the 'password' flag given to the
-vnc argument and when setting the password with the 'change vnc'
monitor command. When libvirt switched to using 'set_password' QMP
command though using an empty password had the effect of disabling
password checking and thus allowing any client connection with no
authentication check.

Impact
------

When the password on a VNC server is set to the empty string,
authentication on the VNC server will be disabled allowing any user
to connect. An application would meanwhile expect that the empty
string would prevent all users from connecting

Workaround
----------

The VNC password authentication scheme is generally considered to
offer inadequate security, so its use is not recommended at all,
regardless of this vulnerability. Applications and administrators
are thus encouraged to make use of the VNC TLS extension together
with SASL for strong authentication.
