[PULL for-5.0 3/5] qga-win: prevent crash when executing guest-file-read with large count

Posted by Michael Roth 8 months, 1 week ago
From: Basil Salman <basil@daynix.com>

guest-file-read command is currently implemented to read from a
file handle count number of bytes. when executed with a very large count number
qemu-ga crashes.
after some digging turns out that qemu-ga crashes after trying to allocate
a buffer large enough to save the data read in it, the buffer was allocated using
g_malloc0 which is not fail safe, and results a crash in case of failure.
g_malloc0 was replaced with g_try_malloc0() which returns NULL on failure,
A check was added for that case in order to prevent qemu-ga from crashing
and to send a response to the qemu-ga client accordingly.
