Subject: [PATCH v2] hw/net/net_tx_pkt: fix assertion failure in net_tx_pkt_add_raw_fragment()
Date: Sat,  1 Aug 2020 18:42:38 +0200
Message-ID: <20200801164238.1610609-1-mcascell@redhat.com> (raw)

An assertion failure issue was found in the code that processes network packets
while adding data fragments into the packet context. It could be abused by a
malicious guest to abort the QEMU process on the host. This patch replaces the
affected assert() with a conditional statement, returning false if the current
data fragment exceeds max_raw_frags.
