CWE ID 125


CVE-2023-41051 is a vulnerability that affects the Virtual Machine Monitor (VMM) in various products, including swtreV, swtreU, swtreR, and others. The issue arises from a flaw in the default implementations of certain trait functions in the vm-memory rust crate, which can lead to out-of-bounds memory access. However, it is important to note that no implementations of the get_slice function provided in vm_memory are affected. The vulnerability was introduced in version 0.1.0 but has been fixed in version 0.12.2 by implementing a check to verify the VolatileSlice return value. While the potential danger posed by this vulnerability is not explicitly stated, it has a base severity of MEDIUM and an availability impact of HIGH according to NIST's analysis. Remediation requires updating affected products to version 0.12.2 or later.
