Description Petr Matousek 2014-02-18 09:33:27 UTC
hpet is a VARRAY with a uint8 size but static array of 32 and the index
(num_timers ) into this array is not checked for sanity.

An user able to alter the savevm data (either on the disk or over the wire
during migration) could use this flaw to to corrupt QEMU process memory on
the (destination) host, which could potentially result in arbitrary code
execution on the host with the privileges of the QEMU process.
