Description

Integer overflow in the virtio_net_handle_mac function in hw/net/virtio-net.c in QEMU 2.0 and earlier allows local guest users to execute arbitrary code via a MAC addresses table update request, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-qemu-guest-agent
  • 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.
