An out-of-bounds read/write access flaw was found in the way QEMU's VGA emulation with VESA BIOS Extensions (VBE) support performed read/write operations using I/O port methods. A privileged guest user could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code on the host with the privileges of the host's QEMU process.

Description Martin Prpič 2016-04-28 13:10:21 UTC
Qemu emulator built with VGA emulation with VESA BIOS Extensions(VBE) support is vulnerable to an OOB r/w access issue. It could occur while doing VGA r/w operations via i/o port methods.

A privileged guest user could use this flaw to potentially execute arbitrary code, with privileges of the Qemu process on the host.
