Description Prasad J Pandit 2014-03-19 11:40:32 UTC
Qemu block drivers for parallels image and formats used by Bocsh are vulnerable
to a crash caused by possible division by zero error, in seek_to_sector routine.
It could occur if 's->tracks' & 's->extent_size' fields are 0. These are used
to derive 'index' and 'offset' values in seek_to_sector() routine.

An user able to alter the Qemu disk image could use this flaw to crash the
Qemu instance resulting in DoS.

Upstream fixes:
---------------
parallels: Sanity check for s->tracks
  -> http://git.qemu.org/?p=qemu.git;a=commit;h=9302e863aa8baa5d932fc078967050c055fa1a7f

bochs: Check extent_size header field
  -> http://git.qemu.org/?p=qemu.git;a=commit;h=8e53abbc20d08ae3ec30c2054e1161314ad9501d
