Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1032862
virtio-rng-egd: repeatedly read same random data-block w/o considering the buffer offset
Last modified: 2015-05-24 20:07:33 EDT
Posted a patch to upstream:
We need a test to verify the data is really random, it might catch this bug.
eg: generate a lot of numbers from 1 ~ 100, then check the distribution
Or using some software to verify it.
Fix included in qemu-kvm-1.5.3-20.el7
Verified on qemu-kvm-rhev-1.5.3-31.el7.x86_64:
read 100 characters, it's random.
