Description

Buffer overflow in the ccid_card_vscard_handle_message function in hw/ccid-card-passthru.c in QEMU before 0.15.2 and 1.x before 1.0-rc4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted VSC_ATR message.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-qemu-img
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-qemu-kvm
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-qemu-kvm-tools

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.
