Doc Text:
An invalid pointer initialization issue was found in the SLiRP networking implementation of QEMU. The flaw exists in the bootp_input() function and could occur while processing a udp packet that is smaller than the size of the 'bootp_t' structure. A malicious guest could use this flaw to leak 10 bytes of uninitialized heap memory from the host. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to data confidentiality.

Description Mauro Matteo Cascella 2021-06-10 14:41:36 UTC
An invalid pointer initialization issue was found in the SLiRP networking implementation of QEMU. The function bootp_input() in src/bootp.c handles requests for the bootp protocol from the guest. While processing a udp packet that is smaller than the size of the bootp_t structure (548 bytes) it uses memory from outside the working mbuf buffer. This may lead to the leakage of 10 bytes of uninitialized heap memory to the guest.
