Description Prasad J Pandit 2017-02-14 04:54:18 EST
Quick emulator(Qemu) built with the SDHCI device emulation support is vulnerable
to an infinite loop issue. It could occur while doing a multi block SDMA
transfer via 'sdhci_sdma_transfer_multi_blocks' routine.

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