Description

Buffer overflow in the e1000_receive function in the e1000 device driver (hw/e1000.c) in QEMU 1.3.0-rc2 and other versions, when the SBP and LPE flags are disabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) and possibly execute arbitrary guest code via a large packet.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-qemu-guest-agent
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-qemu-guest-agent-win32
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-qemu-img
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-qemu-kvm
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-qemu-kvm-tools
