Subject: CVE request Qemu: i386: null pointer dereference in vapic_write

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

    Hello,

Qemu emulator built with the TPR optimization for 32-bit Windows guests 
support is vulnerable to a null pointer dereference flaw. It occurs while 
doing I/O port write operations via hmp interface. In that, 'current_cpu' 
remains null, which leads to the null pointer dereference.

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

Upstream patch:
- ---------------
   -> https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2016-01/msg02812.html

Reference:
- ----------
   -> https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1283934

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

Thank you.
