Description

hw/ide/core.c in QEMU does not properly restrict the commands accepted by an ATAPI device, which allows guest users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via certain IDE commands, as demonstrated by a WIN_READ_NATIVE_MAX command to an empty drive, which triggers a divide-by-zero error and instance crash.

Solution(s)

  • huawei-euleros-2_0_sp2-upgrade-qemu-img
  • huawei-euleros-2_0_sp2-upgrade-qemu-kvm
  • huawei-euleros-2_0_sp2-upgrade-qemu-kvm-common
