Description Prasad Pandit 2016-10-07 11:03:57 UTC
Qemu emulator(Qemu) built with the USB EHCI emulation support is vulnerable
to a memory leakage flaw. It could occur while processing isochronous transfer
descriptors(iTD), with buffer page select(PG) index that falls beyond buffer
page array area.

A privileged user inside guest could use this flaw to leak Qemu memory bytes
leading to a DoS on the host.
