Description

qemu-nbd in QEMU, as used in Xen 4.2.x, determines the format of a raw disk image based on the header, which allows local guest OS administrators to read arbitrary files on the host by modifying the header to identify a different format, which is used when the guest is restarted, a different vulnerability than CVE-2008-2004.
