Description Prasad J Pandit 2014-03-20 13:47:00 UTC
Qemu block drivers for DMG and QCOW version 2 format images are vulnerable to
possible buffer overflows caused by logic errors or non-sanitised inputs from
the image files. Such buffer overflows could lead to memory/image corruption
or crash in Qemu instances resulting in DoS.

An user able to alter the Qemu disk image files loaded by a guest could use
this flaw to crash the Qemu instance resulting in DoS or corrupt QEMU process
memory on the host, which could potentially result in arbitrary code execution
on the host with the privileges of the QEMU process.
