Description Pedro Sampaio 2017-12-14 16:23:59 UTC
An OOB r/w buffer access issue was found in the PowerPC PowerNV LPC controller
in 'pnv_lpc_do_eccb' routine. It could occur while performing a memory write operation. A guest user/process could use this flaw to crash the QEMU process resulting in DoS.
