Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-05-13 09:10:32 UTC
From ${URL} :

Correct post load checks:
1. dev->setup_len == sizeof(dev->data_buf)
    seems fine, no need to fail migration
2. When state is DATA, passing index > len
   will cause memcpy with negative length,
   resulting in heap overflow

An user able to alter the savevm data (either on the disk or over the wire
during migration) could use this flaw to to corrupt QEMU process memory on
the (destination) host, which could potentially result in arbitrary code
execution on the host with the privileges of the QEMU process.

Upstream fix:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
Comment 1 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2014-05-25 17:27:23 UTC
upstream has merged the fix now
Comment 2 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2014-06-06 01:16:31 UTC
qemu-2.0.0-r1 has the fixes

> qemu-2.0.0-r1 has the fixes

Are we ready for stabilization?
Comment 4 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-08-09 12:41:18 UTC
Arches, please test and mark stable:
Target keywords : "amd64 x86"
Comment 5 Andreas Schürch gentoo-dev 2014-08-13 09:13:26 UTC
I suppose we also should do the deps!? 
Are there any opinions about other versions than the following?

I guess we could stable-mask the infiniband IUSE.
Comment 7 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-08-20 10:41:25 UTC
amd64 stable
Comment 8 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-08-20 10:44:43 UTC
x86 stable.

Maintainer(s), please cleanup.
Security, please add it to the existing request, or file a new one.
Comment 9 Yury German Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2014-08-25 16:38:30 UTC
Arches, Thank you for your work
Maintainer(s), please drop the vulnerable version(s).

CVE-2014-3461 (
  hw/usb/bus.c in QEMU 1.6.2 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code
  via crafted savevm data, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow,
  related to "USB post load checks."
