Description Adam Mariš 2016-05-09 13:58:21 UTC
Quick emulator(Qemu) built with the Cirrus CLGD 54xx VGA Emulator support is vulnerable to a divide by zero issue. It could occur while copying VGA data when cirrus graphics mode was set to be VGA.

A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to crash the Qemu process instance on the host, resulting in DoS.
