Subject: CVE request Qemu: hmp: stack based OOB write in hmp_sendkey
 routine

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

   Hello,

Qemu emulator built with the Human Monitor Interface(HMP) support is 
vulnerable to an OOB write issue. It occurs while processing 'sendkey' command 
in hmp_sendkey routine, if the command argument is longer than the 
'keyname_buf' buffer size.

A user/process could use this flaw to crash the Qemu process instance 
resulting in DoS.

Upstream fix:
- -------------
   -> https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2015-12/msg02930.html

Reference:
- ----------
   -> https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1283926

This issue was discovered by Mr Ling Liu of Qihoo 360 Inc.

Thank you.
