Small USB packets are combined into a single, large transfer request, to reduce the overhead and improve performance. The combined size of the bulk transfer is used to dynamically allocate a variable length array (VLA) on the stack without proper validation. Since the total size is not bounded, a malicious guest could use this flaw to influence the array length and cause the QEMU process to perform an excessive allocation on the stack, resulting in a denial of service. Note: in addition to usb-redir, the patchset below fixes other places in the code where stack-allocated VLAs were used (notably, usb/hid and usb/mtp). Upstream patchset: https://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2021-05/msg00564.html Acknowledgements: Remy Noel (cc'd). CVE-2021-3527 assigned by Red Hat, Inc.
