Comment 3 Mauro Matteo Cascella 2020-06-18 09:46:05 UTC

Open Sound System (OSS) is deprecated in favor of ALSA and disabled in Red Hat products. This flaw did not affect the following versions of QEMU as they did not include support for OSS:
* `qemu-kvm-ma` as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
* `qemu-kvm-rhev` as shipped with Red Hat Virtualization and Red Hat OpenStack.
* `qemu-kvm` as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, 7 and 8.
* `virt:8.2/qemu-kvm` as shipped with RHEL Advanced Virtualization.
