Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the QEMU emulator's IDE AHCI emulator. Exploitation of the flaw could occur while committing DMA buffer in ahci_commit_buf() if the command header 'ad->cur_cmd' was null. A privileged guest user could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process instance resulting in DoS. Reduced performance of the system is the highest threat to the system.

Description Marian Rehak 2019-10-09 08:20:27 UTC
QEMU emulator built with the AHCI emulator support is vulnerable to a NULL pointer dereference issue. It could occur while committing DMA buffer in ahci_commit_buf() if the command header 'ad->cur_cmd' is null.

A privileged guest user could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process instance resulting in DoS.
