Description Prasad J Pandit 2016-10-28 09:50:41 UTC
Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the VirtFS, host directory sharing via Plan 9
File System(9pfs) support, is vulnerable to a memory leakage issue. It
could occur when calling v9fs_write call.

A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to leak the host memory
bytes resulting in DoS for other services.
