Description Prasad J Pandit 2018-11-01 06:03:05 UTC
An out of bounds memory access issue was found in the LSI53C895A SCSI Host Bus Adapter emulation while writing a message in lsi_do_msgin. It could occur during migration if the 'msg_len' field has an invalid value.  A user/process could use this flaw to crash the Qemu process resulting in DoS.
