Description Prasad Pandit 2016-10-14 10:47:32 UTC
Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the Rocker switch emulation support is
vulnerable to an OOB read access issue. It could occur while performing a DMA
access 'TEST_DMA_CTRL_INVERT' test.

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