High Nessus Plugin ID 85234
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionThe Xen Project reports :
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.
