Description Prasad Pandit 2016-09-06 11:44:27 UTC
Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the VMWARE PVSCSI paravirtual SCSI bus
emulation support is vulnerable to an infinite loop issue. It could occur
while processing an IO request descriptor, building SG list.

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