Description Prasad J Pandit 2016-09-16 10:36:23 UTC
Quick emulator(Qemu) built with the virtio framework is vulnerable to a null
pointer dereference flaw. It could occur if the guest was to set the I/O
descriptor buffer length to a large value.

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