(edit)
An out-of-bounds write vulnerability has been found in the QEMU emulator built with Human Monitor Interface(HMP) support. The issue occurs when the 'sendkey' command (in hmp_sendkey) is processed with a 'keyname_len' that is greater than the 'keyname_buf' array size. A user or process could exploit this flaw to crash the QEMU process instance (denial of service).

Description Adam Mariš 2015-11-20 10:05:05 UTC
Qemu emulator built with the Human Monitor Interface(HMP) support is vulnerable to an OOB write issue. It occurs while processing 'sendkey' command in hmp_sendkey routine, if the command argument is longer than the 'keyname_buf' buffer size.

A user/process could use this flaw to crash the Qemu process instance resulting in DoS.
