Description

Buffer overflow in the mipsnet_receive function in hw/net/mipsnet.c in QEMU, when the guest NIC is configured to accept large packets, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and QEMU crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a packet larger than 1514 bytes.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-app-emulation-qemu

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
