Doc Text:
An assert failure issue was found in the VGA display emulator built into the Quick emulator (QEMU). It could occur while updating graphics display, due to miscalculating region for dirty bitmap snapshot in split screen mode. A privileged user/process inside guest could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process on the host resulting in denial of service.

Description Prasad J Pandit 2017-08-30 08:19:26 UTC
Quick emulator(Qemu) built with the VGA display emulator support is vulnerable
to an assert failure issue. It could occur while updating graphics display,
due to miscalculating region for dirty bitmap snapshot in split screen mode.

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

removed erroneous rhev-hypervisor tracker that was opened in error and confusing sfm2.
