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:
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
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.
