CVE-2013-4530 qemu: pl022: fix buffer overun on invalid state load
Last modified: 2015-10-27 23:38:37 EDT
pl022.c did not bounds check tx_fifo_head and rx_fifo_head after loading
them from file and before they are used to dereference array.
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.
