CVE-2013-4540 qemu: zaurus: buffer overrun on invalid state load
Last modified: 2015-11-02 19:58:45 EST
Within scoop_gpio_handler_update, if prev_level has a high bit set, then
we get bit > 16 and that does a buffer overrun.
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.
This issue does not affect the versions of kvm package as shipped with
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
