CVE-2016-7170

MEDIUM
New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

The vmsvga_fifo_run function in hw/display/vmware_vga.c in QEMU (aka Quick Emulator) allows local guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write and QEMU process crash) via vectors related to cursor.mask[] and cursor.image[] array sizes when processing a DEFINE_CURSOR svga command.
