Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2015-07-27 15:04:54 UTC
From ${URL} :

A heap overflow flaw was found in the way QEMU's IDE subsystem
handled I/O buffer access while processing certain ATAPI commands.

A privileged guest user in a guest with CDROM drive enabled could
potentially use this flaw to execute arbitrary code on the host
with the privileges of the host's QEMU process corresponding to
the guest.

This issue was introduced via QEMU upstream commit;a=commit;h=ce560dcf .

Upstream QEMU patch(es) submission:

@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.

I don't really understand why this is a duplicate. The bug is in the qemu code, which is present in both qemu and xen.
Usually, in case like this we open more than one bug to better track each package separately.
