If it's related to QXL, you should likely rather report this bug to the
Spice people instead of QEMU. See https://www.spice-
space.org/support.html for more information.

You received this bug notification because you are a member of qemu-
devel-ml, which is subscribed to QEMU.

  Armitage crashes KVM guest with Kali2016.2 for QXL video

Status in QEMU:

Bug description:
  I recently got a strange bug which seems to be related to qemu-kvm and
  QXL. I came here via the hints of the KVM web-site for KVM/qemu bug
  tracking. But, I am not sure whether this is the right bug-tracker at
  all. Please advise me if I placed the report wrongly.

  I installed Kali2016.2 as a KVM guest on a Opensuse Leap 42.1 host
  (fully updated). The KVM guest machine was configured to use a spice
  display and QXL video. Everything OK with the installation with the
  exception of one major application with a Java interface - Armitage.

  Armitage is correctly configured and starts (with some minor Java
  errors) and opens its interface (msf console, target window  etc.)
  Trying to open the 2 specific menu points "Hosts" or "Attack" in the
  menu bar leads to something very strange: The screen flickers, then
  the whole login session is stopped and a standard login window opens.
  This happens independently of the setting for the type of Armitage
  target window (graphical or table like)

  Why do I report this bug here? 
  Because it happens with the QXL graphical video interface ONLY - not with 
video=vga or vmvga ! Neither does the bug occur when Armitage is started in a 
ssh (-X) session from the host. 

  So, it is closely related to qemu-kvm AND QXL and the Java interaction
  with both.

  I really wonder what in the world can make 2 specific menu points of a
  Java application crash a KVM guest and restart a login shell in Kali
  only when QXL is used?

  qemu-kvm version : 2.3.1
  Kernel version of OS LEAP 42.1: Linux 4.1.31-30-default           

  I have described the bug also to the Kali people - see

  Please inform me what further data are required - if this is relevant
  in this bug-tracker at all.
