Description Prasad Pandit 2016-09-06 10:56:39 UTC
Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the VMWARE PVSCSI paravirtual SCSI bus
emulation support is vulnerable to an OOB access and/or infinite loop issue.
It could occur while processing SCSI commands 'PVSCSI_CMD_SETUP_RINGS'.

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