Description Wolfgang Frisch 2020-09-22 13:08:20 UTC
CVE-2020-25741:

A null pointer dereference issue was found in the Floppy disk emulator of QEMU. It could occur while transferring data via fdctrl_read_data(), fdctrl_write_data() routines, if current drive has a null block pointer. A guest may use this flaw to crash the QEMU process on the host resulting in DoS scenario.

Comment 1 Wolfgang Frisch 2020-09-22 13:14:41 UTC
Affects all supported code streams.
The code in qemu-1.4.2 and older is slightly different, but also lacks the null pointer check.
