Description Prasad Pandit 2017-01-20 14:30:50 UTC
Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the virtual hardware watchdog 'wdt_i6300esb'
support is vulnerable to a memory leakage issue. It could occur while doing
a device unplug operation; Doing so repeatedly would result in leaking host
memory, affecting other services on the host.

A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to cause a DoS and/or
potentially crash the Qemu process on the host.
