Description

The esp_do_dma function in hw/scsi/esp.c in QEMU (aka Quick Emulator), when built with ESP/NCR53C9x controller emulation support, allows local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write and QEMU process crash) or execute arbitrary code on the QEMU host via vectors involving DMA read into ESP command buffer.
