Description Prasad J Pandit 2016-10-14 10:37:06 UTC
Quick Emulator(Qemu) built with the JAZZ RC4030 chipset emulation support is
vulnerable to a divide by zero issue. It could occur while computing its
periodic timer's next tick value.

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

Still not applied. Maybe ping the patch and CC hpoussin@reactos.org who looks to be the last person to do actual work on that file
