[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 0/2] Limit and protect execve arguments

From: Prasad J Pandit <address@hidden>


A user program could pass large number of 'argv','env' arguments to an
execve(2) call. It could lead to bad behaviour as the TARGET_NR_execve:
allocates stack memory(via alloca) for these arguments. alloca(3) is
better for allocations of upto one page(4KB) of stack memory. As anything
more could smash stack protectors in place.

This patch(v2) set attempts to fix these issues.

Thank you.
