SUSE Linux Security Vulnerability: CVE-2007-5729

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
7 (AV:L/AC:M/Au:S/C:C/I:C/A:C) October 30, 2007 February 17, 2015 July 04, 2017

Description

The NE2000 emulator in QEMU 0.8.2 allows local users to execute arbitrary code by writing Ethernet frames with a size larger than the MTU to the EN0_TCNT register, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow in the slirp library, aka NE2000 "mtu" heap overflow. NOTE: some sources have used CVE-2007-1321 to refer to this issue as part of "NE2000 network driver and the socket code," but this is the correct identifier for the mtu overflow vulnerability.
